Fundraising Honor Roll

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!

I am walking in honor of my aunt Debra Kurys, a loving daughter, sister, mother, aunt, niece, and so much more. Debra was diagnosed with liver cancer in July of 2013, and by October of 2013 she had lost her fight. She was only 51 years old and was taken from all of us before we even had time to understand how serious her illness was. She fought as hard as she could, and her family was by her side constantly during this unimaginable time. Sadly the cancer was too advanced when she was diagnosed, and the type of cancer was so rare that even the best doctors and hospitals were at a loss for treatment options. Debra is the first in her family to die of liver disease, and besides fatigue and a few other minor symptoms there were no signs pointing to anything serious until the routine bloodwork she had done came back with this shocking news. 

 

 Your donation is not only supporting liver disease research, but funding programs around the country to educate people on liver disease. Seeing someone so close to us taken so abruptly has been devastating, however if we have to the chance to educate people on the signs and symptoms of liver disease, especially the rare forms, we may be able to help save another family from losing a loved one to this horrible disease. I truly believe in the power of education and believe that the more money we spend on prevention the less money we need to spend on treating people. I truly hope that our story will not only inspire you to help us reach our goal, but it will help you learn to seek education and learn more about liver  disease to protect yourself and your families!
