My Story

I have started this page to raise funds and awareness to help find a cure for lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) , a rare but progressive lung disease which currently has no cure.

I have started this page to raise funds and awareness to help find a cure for lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) , a rare but progressive lung disease which currently has no cure. Cysts fill the lungs and obstruct air ways making you breathless.a complication that comes with the disease is internal bleeding and it also effects other organs such as the kidneys and lymphatic system. It effects women in their reproductive years and is in no way linked to smoking. Unfortunately my sister has been diagnosed with this disease which has changed her lifestyle making her reliant on oxygen support and she has to take medication with side effects to prepare her body for a double lung transplant. Hopefully a cure is found sooner rather than later so not only my sister but other women are benefited and don't need to put their bodies through a lung transplant for relief. Any donation no matter the amount is greatly appreciated. We will be doing the 12 km city to bay fun run to raise awareness for LAM and all donations made through the page will go straight to the LAM research alliance.
