The Amyloidosis Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Clarkston dedicated to supporting patients and increasing awareness of the disease. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, amyloidosis is characterized by a buildup of amyloid proteins in vital organs such as the brain, kidneys, and heart. The disease can cause severe fatigue and weakness, shortness of breath, weight loss, swelling in the hand and feet, and more. The group provides research grants for many types of systemic amyloidosis, raises awareness in the medical field to promote early diagnosis, educates medical professionals through its Grand Rounds program and attendance at medical conferences, and empowers patients through a comprehensive range of services.
