In 2010, Sarah was diagnosed with an incredibly rare lung disease called lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM). LAM is a fatal disease without a cure. Read Sarah’s Story to learn more. We have devoted a large part of our travels this year to raising awareness of LAM and helping connect the global LAM community.
June 2017 has been designated as the first Worldwide LAM Awareness Month (WWLAM) by the Worldwide LAM Patient Coalition. WWLAM brings together the global community in a collaborative effort to educate the world about the signs and symptoms of LAM, what it means to live with LAM, and to share our achievements to inspire researchers and clinicians to optimize therapies and find a cure.
