Voices of LAM
August 29, 2014

To respond to the changing needs of our patients and families, The LAM Foundation launched the “LAM Story Booth” at LAMposium 2014 in Chicago.

LAM patients, families, scientists and clinicians have shared interactive stories about their personal experiences with LAM to help create the "Voices of LAM."

Our plan is to add 3-4 new recordings each month, eventually building a library of recordings for everyone in the LAM community.

Personal Journeys With LAM

The LAM Foundation is pleased to offer LAM patients an electronic copy of Personal Journeys With LAM, a collection of stories written by women who are living with LAM.  It’s our hope that you’ll feel inspired as you read these personal stories of courage and determination.  

An electronic copy was emailed to all LAM patients who have given the Foundation their email address. If you did not receive this email and would like to have an electronic copy of Personal Journeys With LAM please email the Foundation with your request at

Please note:  Personal Journeys With LAM is to be considered private and confidential.  Therefore, it’s very important that you not share your copy with anyone (family, friends, etc.) or post it on any social media. Please be respectful to those who have written and shared their personal story so that you can feel connected to others and feel less alone in your own journey with LAM.

Emergency Room Quick Facts Card for LAM

The LAM Foundation is excited to offer LAM patients an easy way to provide doctors in the ER with information about LAM.  We have designed a small card (the size of a typical business card) that is easy to carry and contains helpful information that you can share with the doctor when you go to an ER.  The card can be inserted into a luggage tag and attached to a purse for easy reference.

Click here to print as many cards as you’d like using Avery 5881 business cards (perforated) or on card stock (hand-cut to size).  You can also email the Foundation and request that a card be sent to you.
