The A85 Cure Foundation was founded by Amanda Swanton after 14 months of fear, confusion and countless medical tests before being diagnosed with P.O.T.S.
P.O.T.S. is a cardiovascular syndrome that currently affects an average of 750,000 Americans (particularly people between the ages of 14-24) and 3 million people globally. 85% of all cases are misdiagnosed at first, with symptoms often attributed to anxiety or other psychological issues – the 85 is represented in our name.
Dedicated to funding advancements in research and advocacy to cure Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (P.O.T.S.).
A85 Cure assists in raising funds for research initiatives focused on creating new treatment landscapes and therapy options while strongly advocating for a cure in the immediate future.
The foundation’s intentions are to work in partnerships with physicians and specialists to help raise awareness in the diagnosis of P.O.T.S.
