Interviews

Every person's story is worth telling.

There is no definitive lymphedema or lipedema experience.

From veterans and athletes to college students and parents, life with these conditions is as varied as the people who live with them. Hear from real patients as they share their stories, in their own words.

Honoring Her Mother by Living Well: The LysaMarie Matamoros Interview

Published: 8 March, 2021

She was her mother’s caregiver for her entire adult life and saw the loneliness and pain of immobility associated with lymphedema and lipedema.

LysaMarie knew something was different about her lower body, but remained undiagnosed for years. Gastric bypass, endless exercise – nothing helped. It was only when she started connecting on Instagram that she saw other bodies like her own, which eventually led to the medical treatment that helped her reclaim her life.

LysaMarie is an inspiration who believes in integrating mind, body, and spirit to manage life (and lipedema). A Reiki master, her dream is to create a center that helps others “take that step” to fight for a better future. She changed her own perception, and it changed her life, even opening up doors for old dreams to rise up again.

Follow LysaMarie on Instagram @mata_moros48. The Lipedema Channel interviews are brought to you by Lympha Press, makers of the Optimal Plus, which is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of lipedema and lymphedema.
