Matt Hazledine:
In 2011, at the age of 40, Matt experienced a severe episode of cellulitis in his left leg, which hospitalised him for 13 nights. This subsequently caused a significant swelling called lymphoedema, a chronic lifelong disease with no cure. In 2021, to commemorate 10 years of living with this life-changing condition, he wrote this book to share his extensive experiences and useful tips to help other people to live better with lymphoedema. Matt is joined in the book by over 20 medical professionals and experts, to contribute some invaluable information and trusted guidance about lymphoedema. Previously, Matt has been a trustee of the Lymphoedema Support Network (LSN) and raised over £20,000 for various charities. To raise awareness of the disease and bring the male voice to the fore, he has featured in the Health Section of the Daily Mail, written for newsletters, blogs and books and been interviewed on local hospital radio. To support others with lymphoedema, Matt has launched a new website uniting all sectors of the lymphoedema community in one place, while donating 25% of profits from his book and website to The Lymphoedema Research Fund and other Lymphoedema related charities.His passion and purpose is to help people with this lifelong condition, raise awareness and money for charity. LymphUnited is his new brand for many social media platforms to encourage fellow sufferers to unite and share their experiences.
