An accident while playing basketball at age 15 left him with an unusually swollen leg and, eventually, a lymphedema diagnosis.
Dominique’s mother also had lymphedema, and they learned to encourage each other to stay compliant to manage this chronic condition. Dominique’s mom was a great source of inspiration for him. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, her response was, “When the doctors say no, God says yes.”
He carries on her legacy as the founder of The Process 2 Progress, while serving his Hartford, Connecticut community as both a full-time firefighter and part-time EMT.
Lymphedema affects men and women of all ages. Be inspired by Dominique’s determination. As he says regularly, “Tell me I can’t do something. I will prove you wrong.” The Lymphedema Channel interviews are brought to you by Lympha Press, global leaders in pneumatic compression therapy for nearly 40 years.
