Today is World Lymphedema Day - a day of advocacy and recognition. As many as 200 million people worldwide have Lymphedema. It is a disease without a cure that many health professionals know nothing about, and insurance often doesn't cover. If you love someone with Lymphedema, there are some good habits you can establish to help to create understanding, comfort, and love.

Growing up Latina, most of us didn't have female role models on TV, much less in business. Empresaria Nely Galán's book SELF MADE provides a practical roadmap to empowerment, financial independence, and fulfillment. Learn how to leverage your talents and culture to build your dream. Get the tools to assert, "I am self-made" and be your own hero.

The last year of your life as rendered me captive to your love, which I jealously guard and save for later. Guiding you in life as your mom will someday take precedence over our friendship. But when times get tough, please remember our love.

Rather than worrying about things I cannot change - in this case Lymphedema in my legs - I choose to make friends with my condition and free myself to focus on what's really important - health, family, friends... Here are some things about Lymphedema that really aren't so bad. What's good with Lymphedema for you?

Young professionals are up against a strong Millennial bias, but they're giving the rest of us a run for our money and we can learn a few things from them.

For U.S. Latinos, it’s more important than ever to continue our traditions, tell our stories, share our joy, and dispel myths and prejudices. #NationalHispanicHeritageMonth gives us the opportunity to have important conversations and create sympathy and understanding. Here, I share an unexpected tale of Hispanic heritage and two countries intertwined. http://puravidasometimes.com/2017/09/hispanic-heritage.html

You're laser-focused and hunched over your laptop, but what you're not doing may be taking a toll on your mobility. Work mindfully and keep your psoas happy.

The height of summer (right about now) is particularly trying for people with Lymphedema but there are some great options in breathable, forgiving, light fabrics that will keep us cool and in-style until the temperature drops.

There comes a moment when the restless winds will call you to discover, with your passport in one hand and your family gripping tightly to the other. We'll understand eventually. For now, while you're young, just go.

"What kind of stories do you want to tell and what memories do you want to relive for the rest of your days? Now is the time to write those stories. Set the bar high for yourself – a vantage point from which you’ll see the world for the rest of your life, and don’t slide down. Don’t come back."
