The LAM Foundation's 2020 Annual Report
We began 2020 with energy, momentum, and high expectations for the 25th Anniversary of The LAM Foundation. Our vision for a year of celebration and reflection vanished unexpectedly in early March with the cancelation of our signature event, The 2020 International LAM Research Conference and LAMposium. That was just the beginning of a year filled with fear, unpredictability, adaption, and resilience.
Now we know what we could not appreciate then, 2020 will be remembered as one of the most eventful years in recent history. Through the global pandemic and everything that came with it, The LAM Foundation rose to the challenge of serving our community and delivering high-value programming and resources to our patients, clinicians, researchers, and families.
We are extremely grateful for every person and organization who partnered, donated, and volunteered in 2020. Your support allowed us to effectively respond to the COVID-19 crisis while at the same time safeguarding our valuable work and progress toward the mission to find safe and effective treatments, and ultimately a cure for LAM.
