Fundraising Honor Roll

Hello Family and Friends,

As many of you know from last year my journey with liver disease began in 1987 from tainted blood products during surgery.  It was not uncovered until 1994 that I had contracted the Hepatitis C virus.  I recovered from the acute phase but have struggled with chronic Hepatitis C for more than 25 years.  I unsuccessfully attempted treatment in 1998 but I remained hopeful that with many new treatments being researched and tested I could one day be cured of this silent killer.

I once again attempted treatment back in November 2012 and after 6 months of treatment I was a “positive responder” and made it further than I did in 1994.  It was a VERY difficult 6 months, without a doubt the hardest thing I have ever had to endure and without the unwavering support of my loving wife, beautiful daughter, family and friends I could not have made it to the end.  Unfortunately at the 1 year anniversary post treatment, my test results showed that I have relapsed, so my fight continues!  I am not giving up hope and beleive that with continued new research we will find new treatment options that will one day help win this war.

I will win my fight!

As a participant in the Liver Life Walk on Jun 8th in New York City, I'm helping support the fight against liver disease; I need your help and support too!

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.  Last year I participated in the Liver Life Walk in Philadelphia in May 2013 and raised $1,640 and my goal this year is to exceed last years goal.

By making a donation you'll take me one step higher over my goal and take all of us another stride closer to a world free of liver disease! The American Liver Foundation (ALF) is dedicated to a future where there are effective treatments, cures, and no one dies waiting for a liver transplant.  The ALF mission is to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease. 

With your help, we will fund important work and raise awareness of these diseases that afflict millions of people. If you have questions about the Liver Life Walk or the work of the American Liver Foundation, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you in advance for your support!
