Wendy Sellers, a 30-year-old wife and mother, had been struggling for months with unexplained lung issues before she finally received a LAM diagnosis. It was the early 1980s, when doctors knew little about the disease. Her husband, Rick, and father-in-law, Dr. John Sellers, wanted her to receive the most advanced care available at the time. Wendy traveled to the Mayo Clinic, where she participated in early LAM studies, and her journey was chronicled in The New England Journal of Medicine.
