Amyloidosis Support Group, Inc.
June 5, 2014

I was recently diagnosed with Amyloidosis, and didn't have a clue where to turn to get more information about treatment, etc.. Fortunately I found the Amyloidosis Support Group website, which put me in touch with the amazing work that this group is doing. It provides great information, feed-back, and support sessions for those of us with this disease. Can't say enough good things about the work of two ladies
who are dedicated to this cause -- Muriel Finkel and Kay Rowley. Any question I have is answered promptly. I have attended one support group session -- in Arizona -- that was a wonderful way to 'network' with other Amyloidosis patients. I am looking forward to attending another one in the Seattle area in September. Can't say enough good things about this organization!!!

Child Aid
March 10, 2011

I was a member of a 16 member team that went to Guatemala under the auspices of Child-Aid -- two trips so far, one in 2009 and the other in 2010. Child-Aid's main purpose for many years has been to deliver books in the Spanish language to the children of Guatemala. We were the first group that has gone to Guatemala with Child-Aid for the purpose of refurbishing an elementary school, (painting, electrical, plumbing, etc.) While there, we had the opportunity to observe the high-quality of training that Child-Aid is providing to the teachers, which in turn will great improve the quality of learning. It is amazing to see the impact that a relatively small organization can have on the education system of an entire country! I have become deeply impressed with the quality of the administrative staff of Child-Aid, in Portland, Oregon, as well as the on-site staff in Guatemala. We are looking forward to returning to Guatemala in 2011, to continue our work with this outstanding organization.

The Great!

Dlwhatever is possible to 'spread the word' about the excellent work that is being done by this organization. In turn, this would help develop a broader base of support.
