In this inspiring video, we hear how Mike’s amyloidosis has affected not only him, but his wife Donna and their marriage, too. In fact, they actually agree the diagnosis has brought them closer.
Like many diseases, it is important to remember that amyloidosis changes the lives of more than just the patient. Donna, Mike’s primary caregiver, talks about how they approach Mike’s amyloidosis together – partnering to make the best decisions and tackling day-to-day tasks as a team.
“We’re fighting that same enemy,” Mike remarks.
Patients like Mike and caregivers like Donna are the reason for our unwavering dedication to rare peripheral amyloid diseases, like amyloidosis. You can read more about Prothena’s amyloidosis pipeline here.
