Walk for Fun?  Walk for Life!

Hi everyone!

As you all know, I have a rare, unknown liver disease.  I've been on the transplant list for over 10 years, which is unheard of, but thankfully I keep improving!  I'm doing so well my doctor actually said he will probably take me off the list this year!  With research and studies made possible by donations to the ALF Liver Life Walk from wonderful friends like you, I hope to never need that surgery.

Since DC doesn't have a walk, I register for the Philadelphia walk which is scheduled for September.  I won't actually go there for the walk but instead will hold the 4th Annual Barb Pitts Liver Walk on Saturday, June 7th here in Chevy Chase.  I'll do it earlier than the Philly walk since I will hopefully be moving later this summer.  I'd love to have you join me do a 5K walk in my neighborhood.  If you can't make it, I urge you to get some exercise and do your own walk where you live!

Every dollar I raise will make a difference in the lives of the 30 million Americans living with liver disease. By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping the Foundation provide community-based education and prevention programs, protect the rights of people with liver disease and fund critical research for a cure.

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!  Join my team and become one of "Barb's Babes" today! 

Donating is easy! Just click the "Donate" button to get started.  Any amount is so appreciated! 

Thanks for your love and support!!!

Barb
