LympheDivas Story

Inspired Design

The story of LympheDIVAs began in Philadelphia when two young breast cancer survivors, Rachel Troxell and Robin Miller, developed lymphedema, a side effect of breast cancer treatment that can cause permanent swelling in the arms.

Their physicians and lymphedema therapists recommended a compression sleeve as the most efficient way of controlling the swelling. When they researched the sleeve options, they found that the only ones available were rough textured, heavy, hot, beige, and bandage-like.

Frustrated and dismayed over the lack of options they had for compression sleeves, Robin and Rachel met with Kristin Dudley, a fashion designer, to discuss their idea of creating a more elegant and comfortable compression sleeve.

In late 2007, Robin left the company. Soon after, Rachel discovered her breast cancer had returned. While she was in treatment, she continued building LympheDIVAs, which brought her much joy during her difficult life.

At Rachel's request, her father, Dr. Howard Levin and her mother, Judy Levin, took over the responsibility of running LympheDivas. In August of 2010, Rachel's little brother, Josh Levin, joined the company and is now running it with his parents. They all hope that LympheDIVAs' compression apparel will continue to inspire breast cancer survivors everywhere to feel as beautiful, strong, and confident as Rachel.

Rachel's Mission Lives On

Rachel Troxell founded and served as the first President of LympheDIVAs. On January 22, 2008, although her body succumbed to breast cancer, her spirit was never defeated.

She continued to be a vital presence at LympheDIVAs until the last, where a caller could still hear a cheery, "Hello, LympheDIVAs, this is Rachel." Her fervent wish was that LympheDIVAs and its mission to provide products for the benefit of breast cancer survivors with lymphedema everywhere would continue.

To this end, her father, Dr. Howard A. Levin, her mother Judy Levin, and brother Josh Levin continued her work assuring that LympheDIVAs survives and thrives. If you wish to learn more about Rachel, you may read her blog.
