Liver Life Walk San Francisco 2013

Wako Dx: Earlier is Better

Welcome to our Liver Life Walk Team Page!

“Wako Dx: Earlier is Better” team was formed by Wako Diagnostics (Wako) employees to support the efforts of the American Liver Foundation during the Liver Life Walk in San Francisco. 


Wako is committed to the fight against liver disease by ensuring that tools are more readily available throughout the world for the improvement of patient survival and quality of life.  Certain chronic liver disease patient groups are identified as being at a higher risk for primary liver cancer development, mainly Hepatitis B carriers and Cirrhosis patients.  Enrollment into surveillance programs for these patients is recommended.  Surveillance allows for earlier detection of primary liver cancer, which is when more effective treatment options are available (Earlier is Better).  Participation in the Liver Life Walk is a continued effort by Wako and its members to increase awareness of the importance of primary liver cancer surveillance. Please visit the Wako Diagnostics website for more information:


Aside from the connection to liver disease through Wako, team members have their personal reasons for signing up for this walk.  Many have a loved one or know of someone affected by liver disease.  Please support a “Wako Dx: Earlier is Better” member by visiting their individual page and making a donation.
