Support us!

Progress in amyloid research and new approaches to treatment are improving patient prognosis, but there is much more to be done. In order to pursue our objectives, we will need to fund new projects and offer continuity in project support.

We encourage our patients, their families and friends to collaborate as a fundraising team and continue to increase the community awarness of this group of disease. We encourage you to come up with your own, unique ways of fundraising and to share them with us and other patients.
