Pittsburgh Amyloidosis Research Benefit – A Major Success

Pittsburgh Amyloidosis Research Benefit – A Major Success

The Amyloidosis Foundation hosted a benefit at the Montour Heights Country Club in Pittsburgh, PA on Friday, October 28, 2016 and what an amazing night it was! Over 120 people attended this event to raise funds for our AF  Research Grant Program.


Darcy Tannehill, Ed.D., who has amyloidosis, and her daughter Courtney Sullivan were Chair and Co-Chairs of the benefit. They gathered donations, silent auction items, wine for a “raffle pull” and more. Live music, fabulous food and a beautiful venue made this evening very special. img_5030

Santhosh Sadashiv, MD, who is Darcy’s hematologist/oncologist, spoke about amyloidosis treatments and current clinical trials. Many patients, family members and caregivers were in attendance and everyone felt a sense of community in the room. img_4988 img_4975 img_0021 fullsizerender
