Fundraising Honor Roll

As you may, or may not know, my relationship with liver disease has been deeply personal, and in the last few weeks it has been intense and scary. My husband Niels was diagnosed with liver disease 3 years ago. It accelerated alarmingly recently to such an extent and he was so gravely sick that he received a liver transplant on May 12th. The transplant was a resounding success, and we are hugely relieved, grateful and joyful.

We came down to San Diego for the procedure because I believed we would have the best possible care and speediest outcome, and that is true. Scripps Green Hospital and all those who work there are simply the best.
To celebrate our good fortune and try help others on this journey I am going to participate in the San Diego Liver Walk, and my team will be called "Team Wally Scripps Green Rocks!" If Niels is up for it he will come too!
I am asking for a little bit of sponsorship on this, but keep in mind I will be hitting you up again in September for the San Francisco Liver Walk.

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!Donating is easy!
