As a participant in the Liver Life Walk, I'm helping to move forward the fight against liver disease and I need your help!
As many of you know, we lost our friend, Sam Henke, to liver disease on January 2, 2013. Sam was diagnosed with liver disease just three months earlier. Prior to that, he was a healthy and active individual. Sam played soccer from his early childhood days all the way through his college career. He would later go on to coach several boys and girls soccer teams in the Milwaukee area. Sam liked to golf and participated in many sports and sporting events.
The last time I saw Sam was at his wedding. Sam was married to Amy, the youngest sister of one of my best friends, Sarah. It has been difficult to see Sam and Amy's families coping with this unimaginable loss.
Throughout his fight, Sam endured severe liver and kidney complications along with several respiratory infections. He had been in and out of the ICU unit at Froedert Hospital throughout his fight. Amy, along with his family, were by his side throughout it all. On the morning of January 2nd, the Lord saw fit to put an end to Sam's suffering and welcomed him Home. Sam passed away at the young age of 29.
Recently, a friend of Sam and Amy's reached out to the American Liver Foundation. They graciously sat down with her and listened to Sam's story. The Foundation gave the opportunity to start a fun run in conjunction with their annual walk. The walk is being held on July 27, 2013 at Veteran's Park in Milwaukee. The name of our team is Sam's Striders.
Every step I take 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, you will be helping the American Liver Foundation provide community-based education and prevention programs, protect the rights of people with liver disease, and fund critical research.
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!
