Rare Disease Day - February 28, 2021 

Rare Disease Day takes place on the last day of February each year. The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients' lives

The LAM Foundation is raising awareness of what it means to be rare this year for #RareDiseaseDay on February 28, 2021. Lymphangioleiomyomatosis is a rare progressive lung disease that usually strikes women during the prime of their lives. Known as LAM for short, this disease is characterized by an abnormal growth of smooth muscle cells, especially in the lungs, lymphatic system, and kidneys.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣
