Ninjas Fighting Lymphedema Foundation was founded by lymphedema patient and spokesperson, Amy Rivera.
Amy was born with primary Lymphedema, and was misdiagnosed for over 30 years, leaving her disabled and isolated.
Amy thought she was the only one who was suffering in silence. But, after learning the truth about her condition, Amy realized that this community needed a voice. She established the Ninjas Fighting Lymphedema Foundation to build that community and to ensure no one suffers alone.
NFLF helps patients, schools, hospitals, nonprofits, and communities to better respond to the lymphedema epidemic. They educate, advocate and empower individuals and organizations to take an active role in creating awareness and spreading hope.
NFLF provides a forum for lymphedema education and a growing resource library for patients and healthcare workers alike.
This condition is often under-diagnosed, even by seasoned medical professionals. The goal is to turn that around by providing much-needed education and support for those with Lymphedema, their families, and their caregivers.
