    Breast Cancer Survivor Shares Her Lymphedema Journey

    Anne Race has been managing her lymphedema for decades. The breast cancer survivor developed it after her treatment for cancer.

    "There's no cure, no cure, so it's something you have to live with, and I've lived with it for 23 years," Race said.

    Lymphedema can develop for various reasons including after cancer treatment.

    "Anyone who has had lymph nodes removed or radiated in the treatment of cancer is considered to be a risk," said Wendy Buchholz, a certified lymphedema therapist at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center.
