LAM Liaison, Kathi Hawn, was so excited to share her LAMposium experience with women in her region, she hosted a gathering in her home, just two weeks after the conference. And she invited some very important women who came to present on new LAM research that came from the RLDC•2016•LAMposium. LAM Clinic Director, Rosa M. Estrada-Y-Martin, MD, MSc, from the University of Texas Health Center and Caryn Pope, SLAM trial research coordinator from Baylor University were there to meet with everyone.
This year’s Breath of Hope Gala was a complete sell out with over 410 people in attendance! And with a crowd like that, everything was “off the charts”!
Our Breath of Hope Silent Auction tables had 50 fabulous donated items up for bid, generating well over $9,000. That’s $4,000 + more than last year!
The 2016 Rare Lung Diseases Research Conference, LAMposium and Breath of Hope Gala took place last week and we are hearing it was one of the most successful gatherings, to date, for The LAM Foundation community. If you were able to join us, we are thrilled we could all spend time together. If you were unable to attend, we hope to see you next year and want to share some highlights from the conference.
