In this blog we wanted to share Valco’s latest newsletter.
Isa-Bella Leclair is a young women from New Brunswick, born with Parkes-Weber syndrome, a genetic disorder that has caused lymphedema in one leg.
Isa-Bella is a confident women and insists that ” my condition does not define me” I am born this way, accept me! Last year she participated in a beauty contest in her province of New Brunswick and won. We found out that she wanted to be a model, and since her message was so empowering and asked her to take part in a photo shoot. Isa Bella is now the image on our Medi Lymphedema posters.
A British filming crew found out about our project and asked us to take part in the photo shoot this past spring. Isa-Bella ‘s story was featured on an American TLC show called ” My legs won ‘t stop growing” televised on July 25th.
In a world where every one of us is concerned with our body image, Isa-Bella is confident and proud, she is inspiring !
