Fundraising Honor Roll

 

On August 11th, I'm lacing up my sneakers for the Falmouth Raod Race, my second race ever.  Crossing the finish line will be extra special as I was unable to do so at the Boston Marathon. 

 

I am running in honor of my strong, loving 11 year old son, Zachary,who lives with Biliary Atresia. Zac will most likely need a transplant before adulthood, but with your support, the American Liver Foundation will be able to do more research to find the cause and hopefully a cure for this disease that affects 1 in 15,000 newborns each year in the U.S. Who knows, maybe someday there will be a way to avoid the need of a transplant.  Wouldn't that be great!

 

 

 

In addition, I'll be running to honor our SuperHero, Tom Nealon, who has made our journey with liver disease so much easier in so many ways. Words can't express what he means to us, but can honorably say, that we are family.

 

 

 

The American Liver Foundaiton is and will always be an integral part of our lives.  Please support me as I take step after step, not only closer to the Falmouth finish line, but as WE get closer to beating liver disease.  You can donate via this page or you can send a check to me payable to the American Liver Foundation:

Thank you for giving us more hope that Zachary will live a full, productive, happy & healthy life.

 

 

 

 

Help me to help 30 million Americans.

A world free of liver disease! That is why I am participating in the Liver Life Challenge. The Liver Life Challenge is an endurance sport training program that helps people like me train for a race while supporting the mission of the American Liver Foundation.

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 "Sponsor Me" button to get started.
