Fundraising Honor Roll

This year I will be walking again in the American Liver Foundations signature fundraising event, the Liver Live Walk, and I need your help.

I have the honor again this year of being the captain for Emily's Energy, the team for my neice Emily.  Emily has a rare liver disease known as Biliary Atresia.  Emily was born with this disease and at age 6 months old had an operation known as the Kasai procedure. This procedure is a surgical treatment to allow bile drainage.  It involves exposing the area of the liver where it should drain and attaching part of the small intestine to the exposed liver surface...  A considerable number of the children, even if the Kasai procedure has been successful, eventually undergo liver transplantation within a couple of years after surgery.  Emily is now 38 years old and she has miraculously surpassed that outcome. However, she has reached a stage in her life that now that is the only form of treatment that will help her.  Emily has been placed on the list for a liver transplant now, both here in Milwaukee and in Madison.  So, she is covered throughout the State of Wisconsin.  Now we just are waiting for a match for her.

I will also be walking for two of my  dear friends, Carol Kearney and John Dubey.  Carol is waiting for a liver transplant and John has been a recipient of a liver transplant.  


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 on my behalf for my niece and my friends, 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!

Donating is easy! Just click the blue "Click Here to Sponsor Me" button to get started. You can also click the blue "Click Here to Walk With Me" button to join the Liver Life Walk too.

Another option would be to make out a check to the "American Liver Foundation" and mail it directly to me at 214 Park Street, Wales, WI.  53183.

In advance, thank you so much for any amount that you can donate to our team.  

Sincerely, 

 

Anita Sheats

Captain of Emily's Energy
