Diesel Sweeties creator R. Stevens partnered with Philadelphia-based LympheDivas to design a stylish line of compression sleeves and gauntlets for people with cancer. Breast cancer survivor Lori Dorn explains how the sleeves help cancer patients, “Lymphedema is a condition that can affect anyone who has had a disruption in their lymphatic system. The use of a compression garment has shown to be useful in lessening the symptoms of lymphedema.” Xeni Jardin of Boing Boing talks about how she helped the collaboration between R. Stevens and LympheDIVAs come about. A portion of each sale of the sleeves benefits the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
