Mission Statement

The LAM Foundation urgently seeks an effective treatment, and ultimately a cure, for lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) through advocacy and the funding of promising research. We are dedicated to serving the scientific, medical and patient communities by offering information, resources and a worldwide network of hope and support.

The Philadelphia Friends of LAM is a local community group to support the efforts of the LAM Foundation by fundraising efforts and education.

LAM is a cruel disease that only affects women, primarliy in their childbearing years. There are at least 250,000 women who are either misdiagnosed or undiagnosed that have LAM.

Description

The Philadelphia Friends of LAM is comprised of patients with LAM along with family and friends who wish to help enhance the fundraising efforts of the Lam Foundation.

We hope to host at least two annual fundraising events to help fund a cure for this terminal lung disease.

We also hope to promote letter writing campaigns to State and Local government officials to increase federal funding for the disease.
