LAM Foundation
August 22, 2012

Three months ago I was confused and scared, knowing there was something wrong with my lungs, but not having any idea what. One doctor suggested it might be LAM, but it is a rare disease, and she didn't know. I looked up LAM on the internet and found all kinds of scary information, but I also found the LAM Foundation. I contacted them asking about their listserv that I saw mentioned, and the Patient Services Director responded to me within hours. Since then she has helped me find information, doctors, and other women with LAM to connect with. And all that before it was clear if I had the disease. Turns out I do have it. Found out a couple weeks ago. Some women spend years trying to get a diagnosis when they have LAM. I think my path to diagnosis was made shorter and easier (though not easy) by all the help I got from the LAM Foundation and from the ladies on their listserv. Now I get their newsletter and other information, and it is all tremendously helpful.
