The Amyloidosis Foundation began with the vision of two patients, Don Brockman and Dennis Krysmalski. Don's desire to support research and Dennis's commitment to support patients and increase awareness has been the driving force behind the foundation for the past decade. Don's widow, Mary O'Donnell, has picked up the mantle and led the foundation to become the success it is today.
Our key priorities are:
- Raising awareness in the medical field for an earlier diagnosis.
- Educating medical professionals through our Grand Rounds program and attendance at medical conferences.
- Prioritizing a research agenda through grants and partnership with the Amyloidosis Research Consortium.
- Empowering patients through our comprehensive range of services, including accurate up to date information.
