Amyloidosis Australia is an organization founded and totally run by volunteers.
Listed below are some of the areas in which we very much need volunteers to help
* Participating on the online forum (not just lurking...) which is available when you register on the website.¬† Just having someone to talk to who has been through similar problems as yourself can be very comforting and reassuring.¬† It can also help you to talk about your experiences - therapists use this technique all the time!
* Translation of documents into other languages - contact us!
* Political Advocacy Support (do you know any Australian/NZ Politicans?)
* Publicity and Media Relations (Is your local paper journalist interested in your story?)
Contribute: We rely on donations to help us with our work in raising awareness about Amyloidosis at conferences, as well as running this website and producing pamphlets & CD's about Amyloidosis.
