Access the presentations, panel discussions and proceedings from the 2023 ATTR Patient Summit here.

Hello, my name is Anne Marie Carr, Founder and CEO of Transthyretin Amyloidosis Canada (TAC), formerly Hereditary Amyloidosis Canada. Our mission at TAC is to serve those with transthyretin amyloidosis in Canada. I live with Hereditary Transthyretin Amyloidosis (hATTR). I currently live in Hagersville, Ontario with Mervyn, my husband. I have a son and am a grandmother to lovely Abigail.

Like many of you, the road to diagnosis has been long and confusing. When my first symptoms appeared such as breathing problems, they were considered asthma caused by environmental factors. My weight loss and chronic diarrhea were attributed to viruses that were circulating at the time. I remember that tingling sensation in my fingertips, and I had trouble opening a bottle of water or buttoning my clothes. I was finally diagnosed with hATTR in September 2015.

To all of you who suffer from ATTR, please tell yourself that I know that there are days when you feel alone, and the symptoms are simply intolerable.

Know, however, that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
