Where Compression Meets Compassion

Providing compression garments to ease the financial burden of low-income lymphedema patients.

Improving the quality of life for people living with lymphedema.

The Compression Fund is a Non-Profit Organization that funds compression garments for low-income lymphedema patients. Since proper care for lymphedema symptoms is vital, we believe that all effected by this disease should have access to proper care, regardless of their financial situations.



Our Story

The Compression Store has been seeing lymphedema patients since our opening in 1998.
Many middle-class customers have well-paid insurance plans that cover the cost of their lymphedema garments. On the other hand, the lower-income patients, usually with compromised insurance plans, regrettably receive no coverage for their garments. Being in the compression field has exposed us to the unfortunate reality that many lymphedema patients avoid ordering the necessary compression garments due to the financial strain it puts on them.
For these reasons, we have launched Compression Fund to ensure that no lymphedema patient is left without the proper garments that are so desperately needed to manage their condition.
