About Us

Connie Cares was set up as a non-profit, donor-funded, organization in 2012.  The founder, after losing two family members to Breast Cancer, saw a desperate need for access to compression therapy. Everyone on our staff has either survived cancer or had a family member impacted by cancer. We are here to make a stressful time, less so.

Since our founding, we have provided thousands of pumps all over the United States, at no cost to any patient. Our process is streamlined and efficient to allow us to help you quickly.

Doctors/Therapists

Our committed donors and volunteers are dedicated to seeing, your qualified patients don’t have to pay for a compression pump. We are a non-profit, donor-funded organization solely committed to improving your patient’s quality of life.

How to Help:

Volunteer
We need volunteers to help follow up with our patients as well as work with local cancer support groups.

We work hard so that 90% of your donation goes to help provide lymphedema pumps at NO cost to patients.

Patients

  • With the Connie Cares program Connie Cares covers 100% of the cost for qualified patients.
  • Lymphedema is an excess or blockage of fluid in the lymphatic system. This condition can cause painful and sometimes debilitating swelling. Simple daily tasks such as putting on shoes or clothing, even walking comfortably and sleeping can become difficult.
  • There are multiple causes of lymphedema, including but not limited to cancers and cancer treatments such as radiation, surgeries, mastectomy, lymphadenectomy. Lymphatic compression pumps and garments may also be used for wound care, varicose eczema, venous insufficiency, venous ulcers, lipedema, edema (undiagnosed), May-Thurner syndrome, and others.
  • Sequential, intermittent compression therapy may be used alone or in addition to Compression stockings and Manual Lymphatic drainage. Your medical professional will decide the course of your treatment. Compression therapy will help increase blood flow which promotes healing.   The pumps are user friendly, comfortable and quiet.
