Francine Kalogerou was diagnosed with LAM in February 2019 and instead of letting that define her, it helped her find a new perspective on life. In her own words, "I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I do know I have today. Yesterday is gone. The future hasn't happened yet.

Much to Elizabeth’s surprise, nearly everyone she told about her fundraiser sent a donation to The LAM Foundation in her honor.
