Health, Education & Welfare is a nonprofit founded by Jennifer Edmondson. In 2011, Jennifer was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, and later developed Lymphedema. Aggressive cancer treatments, including surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation resulted in great physical and emotional pain. She decided to use her pain and suffering to fuel her work in helping others. She founded Health, Education & Welfare in May 2018. We've now awarded over $4,000 in compression garments to Wisconsin Lymphedema survivors!
