Amyloidosis Links

In March of 2015 I was diagnosed with a terminal disease known as Amyloidosis. There are three major types of amyloidosis, AL, AA, and ATTR. My specific diagnosis was ATTR with the genetic mutation of SER97ty. Survival rate for ATTR from the onset of symptoms varies between 3 and 15 years. Since June of 2015, I have been on an experimental drug trial by Alnylam known as Patisiran.
