During this visit Lance learned that the University was becoming aggressively involved about working with patience who might have amyloidosis. After that visit we reached out to HUP and asked if they’d help support the marketing efforts for an event called Corvettes for Chip. They quickly agreed and the CMCF is happy to support them moving forward, we ask them to put the monies donated towards amyloidosis efforts.
The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) is world-renowned for its clinical and research excellence, forging the way for newer and better ways to diagnose and treat illnesses and disorders.
