Abstract

The LAM Foundation provides support, education, and hope to women with Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), a progressive, debilitating lung disease. Our goals are to organize, marshal the forces of the scientific community, raise LAM from obscurity, and conquer it in a decade. The Foundation holds an annual research conference in Cincinnati for physicians, scientists and patients. Research pilot projects are funded at $10,000-$25,000 and three-year fellowships are funded from $35,000-$50,000 each year.

Publications

The LAM Foundation was founded in August, 1995 by Fran and Sue Byrnes after their 22 year old daughter was diagnosed with LAM.
