Marilyn Westbrook Garment Fund

Many patients do not have insurance or the financial means to purchase the much needed compression stocking(s)/sleeve(s). It was Marilyn Westbrook’s choice to make sure that no other patients have to endure the pain and frustrations she went through six months prior to her passing (Dec 23, 2007). Marilyn and her husband Doyle donated a substantial amount of money to the NLN which will allow patients who qualify to pay for their garment(s). Please see the application form for a list of eligibility requirements. It is available here http://www.lymphnet.org/patients/westbrookFund.htm. For more information please contact our office.

For those of you that would like to and are able to contribute to the fund, you can make a check directly to the NLN and identify “Marilyn Westbrook Fund”. The NLN can also accept donations of other personal assets, such as stocks from your investment portfolio.
