Amy’s Story

Amy Santiago is the epitome of living beautifully with lymphedema. After seeking answers from every physician she spoke with, she eventually was introduced to the word "lymphedema." Admittedly, she was devastated. Shortly after her diagnosis, she was also approached and asked to compete in a beauty pageant. After initially rejecting the thought, she decided to join pageantry, using her lymphedema disease as her platform to run with. Since then, she's already held  two titles and is spreading lymphedema awareness everywhere she goes.
