I have directed that Warren City Hall will be lit up red tonight, Saturday, March 5, 2022 from dusk until dawn on Sunday, March 6, 2022 to bring awareness to Amyloidosis.
Warren resident Linda Malaspina and the Amyloidosis Foundation both contacted me and requested to light up to bring awareness to this disease. Linda is directly impacted because it is in her family. Warren’s participation helps bring greater recognition to this important rare disease – Amyloidosis is a rare disease that occurs when a substance called amyloid builds up in your organs. Amyloid is an abnormal protein that is produced in your bones and can be deposited in any tissue or organ. It can affect different organs in different people, and there are different types of amyloid. Amyloidosis frequently affects the heart, kidneys, liver, spleen, nervous system, and digestive tract. Severe amyloidosis can lead to life-threatening organ failure.
I am honored to help bring public awareness and understanding to Amyloidosis and its dangers.
