Sirolimus Gave Stephanie a Second Chance

Stephanie Weber

Two years ago, Stephanie Weber’s life was turned upside down. This active mom of three was struggling to breathe. She could barely even care for her Golden Retrievers. Stephanie ended up in the ER with a collapsed lung. Diagnosed with LAM, she was told she needed a lung transplant that week. She was beyond frightened.

Thanks to groundbreaking clinical trials of sirolimus funded by The LAM Foundation, Stephanie got a second chance. The drug slowed the progression of her disease and enabled her to avoid a lung transplant.

Research has had a powerful impact on the lives of LAM patients. Thanks to your generous support, The LAM Foundation has committed $17 million to research, resulting in the sirolimus treatment breakthrough and dramatic advancements in LAM science.  Yet, we are still seeking a cure.
