Thank you to the efforts of Holly Keene Foret from Baton Rouge, LA who worked with her legislators to pass House Resolution 108, which officially recognizes March as Amyloidosis Awareness month in Lousiana. State Senator Claitor and Representative Steve Carter were instramental in passing this legislation and we thank them for their commitment to the amyloidosis community.
Holly’s father was diagnosed in October 2017 with AL amyloidosis and is currently receiving treatment. She wanted to create this annual month of awareness in her state to share details about this rare disease and increase the chances for earlier diagnosis for patients.
This resolution was signed by John A. Alario, Jr., President of the Senate and Taylor F. Barras, Speaker of the House of Respresentatives.
