THE SWELL GROUP AT Overlake Hospital

Meets on 3rd Tuesday of Every Month
6:30pm to 8pm in Bellevue, Washington

Can’t make the support group in Seattle because of a schedule conflict or is it a bit too far of a drive? You are welcome to attend the Swell Group in Bellevue!

Led by Diana Kincaid, Certified Lymphedema Therapist and Executive Director of the Northwest Lymphedema Center, the meetings are specifically designed to meet the needs of people living with lymphedema. The meetings are varied and may include guest speakers, people sharing their stories, product information, and techniques for managing lymphedema. Family members or significant others are invited to attend as well. People who live out of state can join too: presently there is one participant from Kansas who attends via FaceTime!  This group is also in partnership with Cancer Lifeline.
