Past Newsletters

December 2008 - Caregiving during the holidays

November 2008 - Talking with children about cancer

October 2008 - Lymphedema

Lymphedema is a condition in which excess lymphatic fluid collects in the interstitial tissue, causing swelling in specific areas of the body, usually in the arms or legs. Fortunately, with proper care and treatment, lymphedema may be prevented or controlled.

September 2008 - Radiation-induced skin reactions
