My name is Vicki Spanring, In August 2010, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Two weeks later, I had a mastectomy, three weeks after that I commenced a six month program of chemeotherapry followed by two months of radio therapy. Somewhere along the way, I was diagnosed with lymphedema. I was devastated, another thing to cope with. And then I found LympheDIVAs. I was so delighted to see such beautiful, fashionable, comfortable compression sleeves, I wanted all Australian women to have that same choices. So now I find myself the exclusive importer of these lovely fashion items, trading as lympheDonna Pty Ltd. And the story behind the introduction of these sleeves, has touched me deeply. I am proud indeed to be associated with LympheDIVAs .
