Fundraising Honor Roll

Help me to help 30 million Americans, just like Dad, in their fight against liver disease.

A world free of liver disease!  That's one beautiful thought! On April 3, 2013, liver disease took the greatest man in my life away from my family. Dad endured an incredible journey with strength, courage, dignitity, and compassion. He inspired not only me, but every life that he came into contact with. Dad always made everything ok for everyone he met. Now we need to join together and support the millions of people, like Dad, in their own battle with liver disease. Lets work together to help fund the research that will provide a cure. That's why I am participating in the Liver Life Challenge for my favorite marathon.....let's pound down 26.2 miles of Chicago for this incredible cause!

Every step I take and every dollar I raise will make a diference in the lives of more than 30 million Americans living with liver disease.

Did you know:

  • Liver cancer is one of the few primary cancers on the rise in the United States.
  • Approximately 5.4 million Americans are chronically infected with hepatitis B or hepatitis C. About 65% and 75% , respectively, are unaware that they are infected.
  • It is estimated that up to 25% of the U.S. population could have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease--a condition that can lead to life-threatening damage.

By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping the Foundation provide community-based education, research, support, and advocacy related to help prevent and treat liver disease. Together we can make a difference and it's as simple as helping me reach my fundraising goal.

Donating is easy! Just click the "Donate" button to get started.
