Lipedema Awareness Month in June – Fight Lipedema T Shirt Campaign

I’m so excited about this year’s Lipedema Awareness Month coming up in June. I have some great things planned for content and information to share.

If you haven’t been reading the blog for a while and you aren’t familiar with lipedema, you can start by reading my lipedema story that I shared last June. You can find out more online at bigfatlegs.com, Lipese.com (I’m one of the guest bloggers there), and on Lipedema Simplified.

One of the things I’m doing this year is a T shirt fundraising campaign. I’m raising money to have surgery in Germany by a specialist in the WAL (water assisted liposuction) technique. Dr. Josef Stutz has been treating lipedema for 20 years and has even started training some doctors here in the US. I need to raise $30,000 for the cost of the surgeries plus travel expenses. The Fight Lipedema T Shirt Campaign won’t just go for my own expenses, though.

I’ve often wished I could help my lipedema sisters more than I’ve been able to in the past. So many of these lovely women need new compression garments or a lymphatic pump or even just some money to help hire part-time medical care. The Fight Lipedema T Shirt Fundraiser will be split up – 10% will go to Lipese.com to help with website expenses, 10% will go to Lipedema sisters with a GoFundMe, YouCaring account or other type of fundraising account, and the rest of the money will go into my Germany account.

Each shirt is designed by me and is completely unique. Most shirts are available in different sizes and colors. Each shirt will be available for 10 days each. The first design is available now through June 3. You’ll be able to check out all the available designs on the Fight Lipedema T Shirt Campaign Page as they become live.

I can’t wait to share all the interviews, videos and information I have planned for June. It’s going to be a great month.
