Lipedema Awareness Interview with Janet McKinney

June is Lipedema Awareness Month and I’ve got some great things planned for this year.

If you’re not familiar with lipedema, you can start out by reading the posts I made last year for the 2014 blog hop – I Have Lipedema Part 1, Fat Legs Aren’t Our Fault, Lilith’s Road to Recovery, Taking Action – the Lymphedema Treatment Act and More. If you’re not familiar with lipdema, you can find out more at, (I’m a contributing lifestyle blogger) and Lipedema Simplified and the Life with Lipedema Facebook page.

Remember to visit the Fight Lipedema T Shirt Campaign to support me and fellow lipedema sisters with health care needs. Sizes up to 4XL now available on some designs!

This year I have three four! special guests I’ll be introducing to you. These ladies are only a few of my lipedema sisters that I’ve met online. We interact through several Facebook groups nationally and internationally as well as state by state in the US. We pray together, we’ve helped support one another, and we continue to fight for our disorder to be recognized and understood by the medical community and society.
