Wendy Williams Speaks On Her Decision To Share A Photo Of Her Feet To Raise Awareness For Lymphedema

Recently Wendy Williams took to social media to get real candid with her followers as she shared a photo of her feet to show the effects lymphedema has had on her.

In her original post, she captioned the photo and said, “My Dr. Laure is the French lady who’s helping me live with lymphedema. She scrubs & understands my disease is not curable only manageable. Oh yes, I’m wearing a sequin dress why not?!”

Wendy shared the photo to help raise awareness for an upcoming walk/ run to help fight lymphatic diseases as she encouraged her followers to join her team.

The following day, while on her talk show, she discussed her decision to share the photo with her followers and revealed that her team initially questioned her decision to be open with her audience about the disease that causes her feet to severely swell.

She said, “When I posted my feet yesterday, there was a whole big deal in the I.T. department here.”

Wendy continued to mention some of the concerned questions she received, “‘Are you sure you want to post this? They’re going to be mean to you. I don’t think you should do it.'”

Wendy made sure she let her viewers know that she was adamant about having the photo of her feet posted.

She continued to explain that her feet aren’t painful, they’re just “numb-ish” and through her post, she became aware of the number of people who also suffer from lymphedema. Also, many people who weren’t aware of the disease before were able to learn about it thanks to her post.
