Go Gene's Team-Team Dawson!!!

I hope everyone is well and is ready for some spring weather after our snowy winter! We are all doing well and the girls, Jim, Mike and my grandchildren all keep me busy.

It will soon be three years since Gene lost his fight against liver disease and as we begin our third year as "Gene's Team", we thank all our amazing friends and family for their support now and through out the year.

Along with "Team Dawson" we continue our efforts to support the American Liver Foundation (ALF). This year will mark our friend Patti Dawson's 8th year as a liver transplant survivor. Last year our combined efforts raised over $16,000.00.

Research and advances in medicine are providing a better quality of life for people living with liver disease.
