BENEFITING: LYMPHANGIOMATOSIS & GORHAMS DISEASE ALLIANCE INC
We are proud to be included in this year's Macy's Shop for a Cause Charity Challange. With every donation you make to the LGDA from now until August 9th, you will receive a Macy's Shop for the Cause savings pass for use on Thursday, August 10 through Sunday, August 13.
Founded by a patient in 2007, the mission of the LGDA is to bring hope to and improve the quality of life of patients with generalized lymphatic anomaly (GLA), also known as lymphangiomatosis, Kaposiform lymphangiomatosis (KLA), and Gorham-Stout disease (GSD) by providing support to members of the patient community and their families; education for the community, professionals, and the general public; and supporting research that will improve understanding of these diseases and establish best practices for their diagnosis and management.
A major component of the mission of the LGDA is patient support. This includes two very important programs: our patient matching program that helps patients and families connect with one another and our awareness program that helps to raise awareness of lymphangiomatosis and Gorham’s disease among professionals and the public. This is extremely important as patients often feel isolated and helpless as they are typically the only one for miles suffering from these diseases.
The LGDA is also established a patient registry, helping researchers worldwide unlock the mysteries of lymphangiomatosis and Gorham's disease to find a treatment and a cure!
