Welcome to our Liver Life Walk Team Page!
THIS YEAR, THE NYC LIVER LIFE WALK IS ON SUNDAY, JUNE 8TH, 2014.
Chaise was born November, 19, 2009. At eight weeks old, multiple tests determined he had a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia. BA is a disease of the bile ducts that affects only infants which prevents the bile from processing through the liver which results in cirrhosis or scarring of the liver. On Jan 21st, he had his first major surgery which had a 33% chance of temporarily fixing the problem. Three Months later, after many weeks in the hospital due to cirrhosis and more surgeries, Chaise was put on the Organ transplant list. He recieved his "Gift of Life" on Farthers Day, June 20th, 2010 at CHONY. We were all so frightened and relieved at the same time. He spent 28 days in Intensive care due to many complications and further surgeries. Our little Chaise is by all definitions of the word... a survivor and we, his parents are so grateful for his second chance at life and are hopeful for a bright future. We love our little boy so much and know in our hearts that he is destined for greatness. He is talented, smart and such a special boy.
This is our story but there are 30 Million other Americans affected by liver disease and everyone deserves a second chance. A little hope and lots of love go a long way. We greatly appreciate your support.
