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. Looking at life and my situation positively is making all the difference in the world." With this positivity, Francine decided to take action and host a walk-a-thon benefiting The LAM Foundation.

For her birthday, Elizabeth Hardy decided that instead of receiving gifts from her friends and family, she wanted to do something with a little more meaning. It was a big birthday for Elizabeth as she was not only turning 60, but it was also the 25th year since receiving her LAM diagnosis. She wanted to take this opportunity to ask her closest friends to join her for a brunch to celebrate and donate to The LAM Foundation as their birthday “gift”. Much to Elizabeth’s surprise, nearly everyone she told about her fundraiser sent a donation to The LAM Foundation in her honor.

Our family became involved with The LAM Foundation in July of 2017. Our 20-year-old daughter, Marissa, was enjoying a day at the beach when she had some chest pain which intensified while walking and when she laid down. We took her to the ER, where a chest x-ray determined her left lung was about 95% collapsed. Despite efforts to correct the problem with chest tubes, she eventually needed surgery. At the same time, a CT scan of her lungs showed multiple cysts in both lungs.
