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