Lipedema / lipoedema Awareness Day 16 – Cassandra’s Story (part 1)

There’s more to the story: there may be more WHYS to body SIZE!

Bad Steben, March 2014

I met Cassandra in Bad Steben, Germany in March when we were both having lymph-sparing liposuction surgery with Dr. Josef Stutz. She has two small children, and her love for them and her husband motivated her to seek a way improve her physical limitations from the lipedema. She has such determination and courage. This is a very short clip from a much longer conversation! Thanks Cassandra!


Comments and feedback most welcome! Remember to spread the word about lipedema. For more info
