Welcome to our Liver Life Walk Team Page!
Thank you for your interest in supporting our Liver Life Walk team - Team Zoey!
Team Zoey walks in memory of Zoey Isadora Dockal. Zoey "Isadorable" Dockal was born June 14, 2011. In November, after several months of tummy troubles and trips to the doctor, Zoey was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, a rare and malignant form of liver cancer. Zoey's only chance of survival was to be put on the donor list and have a liver transplant as soon as possible. Zoey was blessed to have a liver donor match after only 11 days on the list. While doctors believed the transplant was successful, Zoey's parents later found out that Zoey also likely had a rare disease called Mitochondrial Disease of the heart. This did not allow her heart to recover from her month-long battle with multiple surgeries, procedures, and chemo treatments. After a brave fight, Zoey passed away on December 8, 2011 just 6 days shy of her 6-month birthday.
The American Liver Foundation reached out to our family and has since stayed connected to us. We are forever grateful for their support of families like us and for the work they do in the area of education and awareness. It's our honor to raise funds for the Liver Life Walk and to walk in memory of our tiny hero who's had huge impact on family, friends and strangers alike.
