Fundraising Honor Roll

 This is the third year Jami and I are proudly participating in the Liver Life Walk. I received a liver transplant at Mt Sinai Hospital in New York a little over a year ago. My donor Kerry was a 43 year old wife and mother of two young boys. Her death was no doubt a tragedy and her loss will be felt by her family forever. However in this tragedy there was hope given not just to me and my family, but to those families whose loved one received her heart, lungs, kidneys etc. Her loss gave life to at least five individuals perhaps more. I'm walking not just for me and my family at the Long Island Liver Walk, but for the memory of my donor and the selfless decision she made of becoming an organ donor. If you can, please donate money to our cause, if you can't donate please come and walk, and if you can't do either please become an organ donor. I'd love to have you do all three.I have been lucky enough to have some contact with Kerry's husband Bill and hope to meet him as well as his two sons one day. He now knows how important this gift has been to my wife, Delaney and I, my unborn daughter, my family and friends. He is aware that I'll forever remember his wife Kerry and her gift and how my daughters will be told about the woman that saved their father's life as long as I have air in my lungs to tell them the story. Please donate to help other fathers and mothers share a similar story with their children and grandchildren.


If you have previously donated or spread the word on our behalf we thank you for your continued support and understand that times are tough for many and it makes your donations and time that much more special and valuable. If you haven't donated or walked in the past we ask you please do. Any donation is appreciated and will go towards a cause close to our hearts.

 

As a participant in the Liver Life Walk, I'm helping to move forward the fight against liver disease and I need your help!

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, 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!
