The Foundation has designed many ways for you to keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the LAM community.  We have several publications to help you stay abreast of the advances, activities, and current newsworthy events of the Foundation.

LAM Handbook

This handbook is a great resource for answering questions about living with LAM.  It was written by women with LAM so it is easy to read and understand. Chapters in the handbook include LAM Basics, Diagnostic & Routine Tests, Finding the Help You Need, Taking Care of Yourself, Potential Problems & Solutions, Supplemental Oxygen and Lung Transplantation. The LAM Handbook is sent (free of charge) to all newly diagnosed LAM patients.  It can also be purchased by family members and friends at a cost of $20.  Contact the Foundation at to order a copy.

Personal Journeys with LAM

This publication, written and compiled by the LAM patients themselves, is a collection of biographical sketches and pictures of LAM patients.  These personal introductory stories allow LAM patients an opportunity to get to know one another and to gain insight into how others cope with the disease.  The inspiring stories allow women with LAM to become better acquainted with others who share the same problems and concerns.  The Foundation makes an effort to update the publication periodically.  This publication is available to LAM patients only.
