This questionnaire was created by AdZou, a University of Missouri student-run advertising agency, in cooperation with the American Lymphedema Framework Project. This survey will take less than 5 minutes. All answers on this survey will only be used for educational research purposes. Thank you so much for your help!

Hi Advise

Really curious here...since it was created by an advertising agency, is this going to be used for advertising? If so, I have to tell you that it makes me very nervous for any of us to participate. What exactly was the ALF's role?

The information is going to be used only for a educational project as part of our graduation requirements. It won't be used for advertising! We are working directly with the ALFP and are helping them to develop partnerships with corporations, like Under Armour.

Great - thanks for answering so promptly. can never be careful enough when it comes to the internet.

It would be great to see the ALFP link up with some corporations. The cost of compression garments and even short stretch bandages is so terribly out-of-sight. There's got to be a way of bringing some of that expense down to help the patient.

Because of the way my LE is and how it has engulfed me, I can't wear compression garments, but I sure use those bandages....which reminds me, I really need to order some more :cry:

Thanks again
