About The Chip Miller Charitable Foundation:
In December 2003, Chip Miller was diagnosed with a little-known disease called Amyloidosis. Sadly, due to complications from the Amyloidosis, the world lost an incredibly special human being on March 25, 2004. Had Chip and his doctors been aware of the symptoms of the disease when they first presented, this legend might still be with us today.
AMYLOIDOSIS occurs when enough abnormal protein, called amyloid, builds up in one or more organs to cause a malfunction. As an abnormal protein, amyloid originates in bone marrow. The heart, kidneys, nervous system and gastrointestinal tract are most often affected by the disease. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS of Amyloidosis depend on the organs affected. The wide range of symptoms makes it difficult to diagnose.
THE MISSION of the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation is to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of Amyloidosis for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cures.
