1 in 10 people in the US are living with a rare disease. Amyloidosis is a rare disease that has no cure. Patients who have this disease are strong fighters, that have struggled for years to get a final diagnosis, often times too late for any treatment.
The Amyloidosis Foundation is located in a small town in Michigan – but we have a global reach. We have a staff of only four – though we have raised enough funds since 2005 to award over $1.4 million in research grants. Our focus is patient support, education, awareness and research.
This year we raised over $10,000 on #GivingTuesday. Donations came from near and far, Poland to California, Pennsylvania to Georgia. We are proud to serve these amazing patients and their families, as we fight for a cure.
On #ThankYouWednesday, we are grateful for our donors, patients, volunteers, Board of Directors, Scientific Advisors and everyone in the amyloidosis community for their passion.
