My husband passed away of amyloidosis in 2004. At that time, not much was known about amyloidosis. I know it is not unusual today to hear the same about amyloidosis, but with Amyloidosis Support Groups networking with hospitals in the field of amyloidosis, having support groups in hospitals, holding conferences, having an on line group for patients and caregivers, booths at medical conferences, those with amyloidosis are no longer alone. I volunteer with the Ohio & Michigan Amyloidosis Support Groups and seeing the patients, families and caregivers interacting together about their symptoms & treatments is heart warming. Otherwise, they would have no one who has walked their walk or would know no one who had this rare disease.
