Say hello to Andrew
Andrew is a young adult living with hereditary angioedema (HAE). Born in 2002, he was diagnosed with HAE type 2 at the age of 5. Andrew graduated from Forestview High School in June 2020, and he started college at Appalachian State in September 2020, where he majors in education. We have known Andrew since he was a child, and his resilience continues to motivate, energize, and inform our work every single day.
Come celebrate the extraordinary
Advocacy is the common thread
we thrive on
Every day we are working to help meet the needs of the patient communities we have the immense pleasure of partnering with and learning from. We have the important responsibility of elevating and embedding the patient voice and experience company-wide to ensure we are doing what is right every step of the way.”
As a nurse, you are taught the value of ‘patients as teachers.’ Their insights and experiences are so valuable, especially in rare disease. I’m passionate about patient advocacy and the vital role it plays in our mission at BioCryst.
My job revolves around engaging with the most extraordinary people whose extraordinariness extends well beyond their or their community’s diagnoses and manifests every day in their advocacy work. Although my own rare diagnosis initially made me feel like I won the world’s worst lottery, at BioCryst, I am incredibly fortunate that my own experience led me to this career where I connect with and learn from fellow zebras daily.”

Collaborating with the communities we serve
We build genuine, enduring relationships based on trust and transparency with members of the rare disease community—including those who belong to the hereditary angioedema and complement-mediated disease communities—and all who support them. Through collaboration and listening, we meet patient communities where they are and foster empowerment through educational awareness and support initiatives. We offer a range of opportunities to provide financial support to these communities, from educational grants and sponsorships to charitable donations.
