Kathy Bates and her battle with Lymphedema
Kathy’s fans and followers must feel that she is unfortunate for having caught lymphedema disease. It is a sad story how this award-winning actress had to battle her way with some condition so disfiguring that stem from her breast cancer surgery that was held in 2012. The doctor had removed her 19 lymph nodes which requires her wearing a sleeve that minimizes swelling in her arms.
Kathy is suffering from the disease which is a very rare condition and very less people suffer from it. Even though she never considered herself attractive enough to reach the stardom of an actress, she has received an enormous support from her fans and followers when she needed.
Look how she shares anything about lymphedema maybe because she has been there already. She must have felt very bad when she was diagnosed with such a chronic disease.
