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

Rating: 5 stars  

After being ill for a short time, my husband, Bill was diagnosed January 13, 2004 with Amyloidosis. He passed away February 22, 2004. I found out about this support group and went to several meetings in Philadelphia. This disease is so rare that I had no idea where to turn for any support to help me or my three grown children, get through the grieving process. I was very grateful to hear of others and how they were dealing with this disease.
Although I haven't been to any meetings for years, I like being informed through emails of all the progress research has made.
My husband was a very healthy man taken to soon, 52 years old, and to quick by a disease neither of us heard of. This support group is a place for families to meet others who are going through some of the same health issues and find out where they can be best treated for this disease, I hope this group continues with their wonderful support for Amyloidosis patients, giving hope along the way.
