Welcome to our Liver Life Walk Team Page!!
Thank you for your interest in supporting our Liver Life Walk team, Team Deb! This team was made in honor of 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.
