Fundraising Honor Roll

Friends:

I’m climbing Mt.Shasta in less two months. It’s a big climb, way up there in Northern California– peaking at 14,179 feet. There’s some ice and bad weather mixed in along the way, too.

Now, me climbing mountains is nothing new. But I've decided to do this one a bit differently. Leading up to the climb, I’m aiming to raise $2,500 to help people with liver disease. Every single dollar will go to the Liver Life Challenge, an endurance training and fundraising program that helps people like me train to climb big mountains while raising money for liver disease prevention and treatment.

By making a donation to my climb, you will be helping the American Liver Foundation provide community-based education, research, support and advocacy related to help prevent and treat liver disease, which afflicts at least 30 million people. Every single dollar goes to people who are sick and deserve a helping hand.

Why tackle liver disease?

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

I can’t do this alone. I can’t climb this mountain without good guides to lead me, and I can’t raise the money without good people offering their support. Whatever you can give is so helpful and appreciated – every dollar goes a long way. To be exact, it goes 14,179 feet -- to the top of Mt. Shasta.

Just click the "Donate" button to get started. Thank you for your support. It means so much.

Next up: Mt. Shasta's Summit!

 

With love and gratitude,

Heather
