Each person in this video is affected by amyloidosis. Each has their own story to tell the world, which begins, but doesn’t end, here.
Amyloidosis is a rare and incurable disease, affecting people in different ways. As a result, this often slows the diagnosis time, during which the disease continues to advance. Accurate diagnosis as to the type of amyloidosis is critical, as it directly determines the path of treatment.
Amyloidosis knows no boundaries. In the words of Jill Johnson, the last face in the video, “… amyloidosis does not discriminate. It will take the young, the old, male, female and all races and socioeconomic levels.”
A huge thank you to those that participated, for they are the true fighters.
The push to raise awareness is intensifying.
The fight to find a cure is ON.
A special thank you to Andra Day. Her song “Rise Up” and amazing voice brought these stories to life.
