Reviews for Lam Foundation

I was diagnosed with LAM in 2007, and after discovering a lot of out dated information on the internet, turned to the LAM foundation. I was given much needed emotional support from the staff as well as information and contact info for fellow LAM patients. LAM is such a rare disease, and many patients who have LAM, do not know it. The foundation also works on increasing awareness of this disease and it's symptoms. Without this foundation, I would not have the resources that I have been exposed to.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
-having a LAM liason -finding a LAM clinic in my area -receiving literature to distribute to raise awareness. -peace of mind knowing I can call the foundation if I have questions. -receiving the support through the LAM ListServ.
