For the FOURTH year in a row, I am participating in an extremely physically and mentally challenging event to raise funds for the American Liver Foundation's signature fundraising event, the Liver Life Challenge, and I need your help!

Every step I take up Mt. Shasta on June 15 (beginning around 1 am!) and every dollar I raise will make a difference in the lives of the 30 million Americans living with liver disease. By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping the Foundation provide community-based education and prevention programs, protect the rights of people with liver disease, and fund critical research for a cure.

Did you know?

  • In the US liver cancer has doubled over the past 20 years and is the the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide.
  • Viral hepatitis is the leading cause of liver tranplantations in the US, and that number is growing.
  • There are four times as many Americans living with hepatitis C as opposed to HIV.
  • More than six million children have fatty liver disease.
  • The CDC estimates that a whopping 33% of all baby boomers are infected with hepatitis C!

By making a donation you'll take me one step closer to my goal and take all of us another stride closer to a world free of liver disease.

Donating is easy! Just click the big PURPLE Donate button above right to get started.

Donations of $100 or more will receive a special thank you gift.

Thank you!
