It's personal - my lymphedema journey

1 comment

When I started my skincare company many moons ago, it was with the desire to help improve my health as well as others. 

My journey was deeply personal and still is.
I needed nourishing, natural, non-toxic products that would help heal, protect, and strengthen my skin to protect me from infections, but also help my system detoxify.

You see, I have lymphedema. Lympha-what you might ask? Even health professionals say that to me from time to time! It's a relatively rare condition, with approximately 1 million Canadians being affected. 

I'm about to embark on another health journey to improve my life with lymphedema and I wanted to share it with you, my valued customers and loyal fans. You have followed along my PLANTiful journey and made my life better. I've been able to carve out a life for myself as an entrepreneur which allows me to take time when I need it to look after my lymphedema.

How you can help:

please donate!

We have set up a fundraising campaign to help raise funds needed. This week I am going to France for a Lymphatic MRI and meet with Dr Becker, a surgeon with 20 years experience treating lymphedema.

If you can't that's okay. Please help spread the word about our campaign as someone you know may be able to help. Every little bit adds up to help us get to our goal.
Fundraising campaign:

Other ways you can help: Shop PLANTiful!

It's my bread and butter! So extra funds will be coming from here the next couple of years to help raise the money I need to have surgery.

If you have read this far, you are amazing! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Hi Amy, I found information on Plantiful in this months Pathways magazine. I have secondary Lymphedema in my right leg as a result of cancer surgery which removed 18 lymphnodes in the groin area. Yup, it is an ongoing battle! I am interested in your oil but not so interested in the $18.00 shipping fee… is there another option for shipping or are your products available in a retail location? I live in Stettler and mostly doctor in Calgary but do travel to Camrose and Red Deer quite often and occasionally Edmonton. I am interested in hearing more about your journey -are you connected to a support group in your area?
