Lymphedema Depot is proud to announce that our own Bonnie Baker has been chosen as the 2013 Lymphedema Honouree by the Lymphedema Association of Ontario.
Here is what the LAO has to say about this honour:
“Each year, the Lymphedema Association of Ontario chooses a new honouree who we feel has worked hard to make a difference in the Ontario lymphedema community.
“This year’s honouree, Bonnie Baker, has been an influential lymphedema advocate for many years. In her business, volunteerism, fundraising activities and social networking, Bonnie has been relentlessly spreading the word about lymphedema across Canada and beyond”.

I would like to thank the LAO for recognizing Bonnie in this way. Her leadership skills in business and in patient advocacy are evident every day. Her commitment to the patient and the idea that the patient is the ultimate beneficiary of every process is instrumental in all she has accomplished in the last few years. In turn, we recognize the importance of every member of the lymphedema community, all of whom strive to make the world a better place for lymphedema patients.
