The universally agreed upon standard of care for lymphedema is Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT). Physicians Michael and Ethel Foeldi created this system in the early 1980s in the Black Forest of Germany. Their system transformed lymphedema care throughout Europe and subsequently in the United States beginning in 1989.
LympheDIVAs
 
The story of LympheDIVAs began in Philadelphia when two young breast cancer survivors, Rachel Troxell and Robin Miller, developed lymphedema, a side effect of breast cancer treatment that can cause permanent swelling in the arms. Their physicians and lymphedema therapists recommended a compression sleeve as the most effective way of controlling the swelling. When they researched the options for the sleeve they found that the only ones available were rough textured, heavy, hot, beige, and bandage-like. Frustrated and dismayed over the lack of options they had for compression sleeves, Robin and Rachel met with Kristin Dudley, a fashion designer, to discuss their idea of creating a more elegant and comfortable compression sleeve. In late 2007, Robin left the company. Soon after, Rachel discovered her breast cancer had returned. While she was being treated, she continued building LympheDIVAs, which brought her much joy during a difficult time in her life. Rachel died January 22, 2008, at the age of 37. Her determination and compassion to improve the lives of breast cancer survivors is very much ingrained in the spirit of LympheDIVAs. To this day LympheDIVAs' compression apparel continues to inspire breast cancer survivors everywhere to feel as beautiful, strong and confident as Rachel was.
