About Who is Amy?
The Who is Amy? is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting research efforts and raising awareness of the rare blood disease amyloidosis. A build-up of abnormal antibodies, called amyloid, in a person’s bloodstream is deposited in the body’s organs causing organ breakdown. Progress is being made in research efforts toward finding more effective treatments but there is no cure and little medical awareness. The mission statement of Who is Amy? is to “Raise Awareness, Advance Research, and Save Lives.”
