Amyloidosis Brought My Family Together – Jason Conway


My name is Jason Conway and I am a husband, father, teacher, and coach. I am 48 years old and have lived a pretty normal, healthy life. I have always been active and have taken care of myself. I am also an amyloidosis patient.

My life changed drastically in January of 2015. I was with my daughter at my son’s basketball game and I started having cardiac problems. Being a guy, I just wanted to ignore the racing heart and the difficulty of walking up the bleachers. My daughter didn’t ignore the symptoms and made sure to tell my wife when we got home. In hindsight, I’m glad she did because the next day I was admitted into the hospital with cardiac related concerns. The doctors diagnosed me with cardiac myopathy.
