Fundraising Honor Roll

As most of you know my Dad passed on January 17th, 2013 from Liver Cancer and it was a shock to all of us! He was diagnosed in September and the world we all knew just stopped.

There is not enough money in the world to replace my dad but maybe together we can help save someone else's "someone special". This walk and collecting donations are important to my family and I. We are hoping to raise money to help the process of learning about this disease and one day finding a cure.

 Since my dad has passed there have been 3 other people that I’ve learned that has passed from liver cancer. You don’t have to be a drinker…my dad wasn’t.

I've always tried to support causes - people and events so I am hoping you will help me raise money to help other families.  These days everyone you speak to knows someone who has some form of cancer and it’s horrible. I knew it before my dad was diagnosed but during the process of his sickness; its completely eye opening!  I saw the pain that he went through and he didn’t complain; I don’t think anyone should have to go through that! This disease does not affect just the individual – It affects the whole family. There isn’t anything we wouldn’t have done to make things better for my dad; even giving him a liver but that wasn’t an option for him.

Lets work together to help many other people affected. If you can donate that’s wonderful. &/or if you'd help me even by just "sharing" the link, or if you just want to walk with us ...that would be spectacular too.

Thank you,

Andrea Scelisi
