On May 19, 2013 my wife Patty and I and our son Zachary (10) will participate in the Liver Life Walk in Providence RI to raise funds for the work of the American Liver Foundation (ALF), the nation's leading nonprofit organization dedicated to liver health and disease prevention.
As some of you may know, Zachary was 3 years 6 months old when diagnosed with acute liver failure back on January 25, 2006 and placed on the transplant "waiting list". Six days later, his name climbed to the top of the list because time was running out - his liver was dying. On February 3rd, Zachary was fortunate enough to receive a liver transplant and a second chance at life.
It has been a little over 7 years since Zack's life-saving transplant and he is doing wonderful. Unfortunately, this outcome does not always hold true for people on the waiting list and those with liver disease, making it a cause that my family is very committed to.
Liver disease is often unknown or misunderstood. Here are some compelling statistics:
ALF is dedicated to a future where there are effective treatments, cures, and no one dies waiting for a liver transplant. The ALF mission is to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.
Today, I invite you to join us in support of our efforts by making a tax-deductible contribution to the American Liver Foundation. Donating is easy! Just click the "Support Michael" button to get started!
With your help, we will fund important work and raise awareness of these diseases that afflict millions of people. If you have questions about the Liver Life Walk or the work of the American Liver Foundation, please do not hesitate to email me or visit the ALF website at www.liverfoundation.org/walk. On behalf of the 30 million American affected by liver disease, My family and I thank you in advance for your support.
Michael, Patty & Zachary Wedda
