Children Embracing in Circle

Our Mission

Is to empower children and adults battling primary and secondary lymphedema by providing essential support through specific shoes, compression supplies, and resources. We are committed to enhancing their quality of life, promoting awareness, advocating for change across the medical field, and fostering a community of strength and resilience. 

"In every step we Rise Above lymphedema"

While our primary focus is on children, we extend our support, friendship, and resources to individuals of all ages dealing with lymphedema and its challenges.


Because "wait and see" is NOT an option!

What is lymphedema?

Lymphedema is a chronic disease characterized by the accumulation of lymphatic fluid in certain parts of the body, typically in the limbs, due to a compromised lymphatic system. 



Through the STEPS initiative, we aim to empower individuals with lymphedema to live their lives to the fullest, providing the support, education, and resources they need to thrive. Join us on this journey towards better health and well-being—

one step at a time.

"I really appreciate Jo Rising just listening to me vent about the hurdles we face with these diseases, I think that is the most valuable thing Jo Rising offers."



"Jo Rising doesn't pick the shoes, they allow us parents to make that decision. That shocked me. I am grateful for this organization because I don't have to  go the shoe route alone."

Nancy Young
