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!

Stacy's Story
Greetings, all! Thanks for visiting my Liver Walk page for the "Liver Lovers"! (team naming credit shout-out to Jamie Koshak! Thanks, girl!)

I have a slow, long-term, progressive liver disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) that damages my bile ducts inside and outside my liver. The bile ducts become blocked by inflammation and scarring, which will eventually cause severe liver damage and cirrhosis. Unfortunately a liver transplant is most likely in my future -- but we aren't there yet!

To learn more about PSC, you can visit the American Liver Foundation website at:
http://www.liverfoundation.org/abouttheliver/info/psc/

So far, I've been maintaining my own and most people don't even know I'm sick unless I tell them. On a daily basis, I'm extremely fatigue, itchy, feel like I have the flu and typically have some form of pain that ranges from the insignificant to the downright dreadful. But most importantly, I try to keep a positive attitude! No reason to be miserable -- "ain't nobody got time fo dat!"  :)

I try to give back and help others as much as I can -- and now I'm starting a new challenge: raising money for the American Liver Foundation. Why? Because it's important! Individuals across the globe are affected by liver disease. Some, like me, you might not even suspect! But it's time we kick liver disease awareness into high gear while raising money for prevention and education!

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a giver and huge volunteer for any good cause -- but this time I need to ask for YOUR HELP! I can't do it alone! So whether you'd like to join me as a LIVER LOVER team member to raise money and walk on June 1 at Kennywood Park -- or prefer to make a monetary donation -- EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS!

 

Thank you for all of your help and generosity! Remember to LOVE YOUR LIVER!  :)  God Bless!
