Review for The Lam Foundation, Cincinnati, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was diagnosed with LAM, I felt so lost and alone.. I did the online research and was filled with dread. I found one foundation dedicated to help people like me, the LAM Foundation, and I don't know where I'd be if not for them. I'm still very sick, on oxygen and in need of transplant -- but these people give me information and hope. They are always no more than an e-mail or a phone call away.

Review for The Lam Foundation, Cincinnati, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a 25 year old LAM patient from New York named Lisa, facing a double lung transplant because my lungs are beyond saving at less than 30% function. The LAM Foundation has put me in contact with other women like me, and made me feel less alone. Although this disease is rare, serious, and fatal without a cure -- just having a support group and an amazing Foundation to turn to is invaluable. I couldn't imagine going through this by myself. We need to make the general public aware of LAM, because despite our efforts, it is still very largely unknown in the general public.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

LAMposium, online, over the phone.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Somehow make the general public more aware of it's existence.
