This Amyloidosis Research Benefit is Less Than 2 Months Away!

Doggone, it feels good to fight amyloidosis! The condition causes abnormal proteins to be deposited in organs like the kidneys and heart. That’s got bad news written all over it. But then there are organizations like the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation (CMAF), which are just generally awesome and do all they can to stop amyloidosis and help those living with it.

Chip Miller was diagnosed with amyloidosis in December 2003. He succumbed to complications from the condition and lost his life on March 25, 2004. While he was alive, however, Chip expressed his love for Corvettes and worked with Bill Miller to create Carlisle Events, an event production company specific for the automotive industry.

Now, Chip’s passion is being used to fight the nasty disease that took his life.

On October 28, 2016, at the Montour Heights Country Club in Coraopolis, PA, the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation will host their 2016 research benefit.

Since the inception of CMAF in 2005, the organization has contributed over $1 million to research for an amyloidosis cure. This year’s event will be chaired by Dr. Darcy Tannehill, who is also living with amyloidosis.

This year’s research benefit will feature dinner, live music, a cash bar, and a silent auction. Tickets for individuals are $175, with tables of eight available for $1400. To purchase tickets and help support the fight against amyloidosis, click here.

Though "Ernest" is a family name that's been passed down for generations, James truly earned his middle moniker when, at the age of five, he told his mother that "laughing is stupid unless EVERYBODY is happy." Since then, the serious little bastard has been on a mission to highlight the world's shortcomings (and hopefully correct them). In addition to his volunteer work at hospitals and animal shelters, James also enjoys documentaries and the work of William Faulkner. He is originally from Oklahoma.
