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.

Trust Your Instincts: The Sonja and Tayler Interview

Published: 25 March, 2022

Mother-daughter duo Sonja and Tayler have a unique bond: they both live with chronic conditions.

Tayler was born with lymphedema, and although her swelling was obvious from birth, she wouldn’t be diagnosed until she was twelve. Around the same time, her mother Sonja was diagnosed with lipedema.

From the quest for a diagnosis to navigating treatment, going through the process together has allowed Sonja and Tayler to learn from — and lean on — one another. They’ve also met other lymphedema families through a memorable experience at Camp Watchme, the first and only summer camp in the United States for children with lymphedema.

For families beginning their own lymphedema journeys, Sonja says to trust your instincts: “You know your child best.”

“It may seem hard, but you need to keep on trying,” adds Tayler. “It will end up getting easier.”

The Lymphedema Channel interviews are brought to you by Lympha Press, global leaders in pneumatic compression for over 40 years. Find out more by visiting www.lymphapress.com.
