To make a positive and lasting impact in New Zealand, helping Amyloidosis disease patients from various disease subgroups ( AL, AA, hATTR, Wild Type) by working with local and international doctors, pharma treatment entities, as well as government agencies to bring approved funded treatment drugs into NZ for suffering patients. We desire to help build a lasting support system within the NZ health framework.

This mission includes the wellness of the patient's caregiver and family whose needs, we feel, have been neglected.
