FINANCIAL SUPPORT

A clear path to prompt,

Patients with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) and their families face a variety of challenges every day. The cost of treatment should NOT be one of them. That’s why we created Catalyst Pathways™—a free program that offers personalized support and assistance to adults with LEMS and their families.
