Review for Amyloidosis Support Group, Inc., Wood Dale, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am the caregiver for my Father, who was diagnosed with AL Amyloidosis in September 2013. He started treatment at our local hospital. I attended a meeting of ASG in NY in February 2014. I believe this meeting saved my Dad's life. If it hadn't been for the advice of the specialists, as well as the support of other patients and caregivers, Dad may have gone through with a SCT his body likely would not have tolerated. He's since selected a different specialist and is continuing with less drastic treatment options.
I am so incredibly thankful to have come across ASG. Having a loved one diagnosed with a strange and rare disease that most doctors don't understand is life altering. It is a great comfort to have this family of caregivers and patients. Additionally, ASG has provided current medical developments promptly, and also works with medical team to help answer questions of group members.
