Welcome to LAM Action
LAM Action is the UK charity for patients and families with Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (also known as LAM) and doctors caring for patients with LAM.
LAM is a rare disorder which affects women only, and is generally diagnosed in women of childbearing age. The condition mainly affects the lungs, where it causes excessive growth of smooth muscle tissue which progressively erodes lung function.
LAM Action has two primary aims:
- We provide information, support and encouragement for LAM patients and their families – through this website, an email chatline (LAMLine), a regular newsletter (LAMPost) and our annual meeting.
- LAM Action also raises much needed money to help in the research into LAM.
