LAM Foundation
June 9, 2010

I am 55 years old, live in Nova Scotia Canada and I am categorized as having Mild LAM and I am stable at the moment. I was diagnosed in 2004 after my lung collapsed twice. After a biopsy & surgery to attach my lung to my chest wall I was dumbfounded with the diaganosis of LAM. Fear, anger and disbelieve were just a few of the emotions I felt. My respirologist told me about a Natural History Study at the NIH & I signed up. I was contacted by the LAM Foundation & was sent some literature about LAM, found out there was an email community for LAM patients that is wonderfully comforting & informative. Thank you LAM Foundation & NIH for being there for us "Lammies".
