On November 6, 2011, my coach, my friend- my dad, passed away from a short and nightmarish battle with a form of liver cancer that silently took over his body before it was too late and was no longer treatable without doing more harm than good. My dad was only 59 years old.
Cholangiocarcinoma is a very rare bile duct cancer of the liver that occurs in approximately 10-20 per 1 MILLION annually in the Western World. Risk factors are sometimes vague and causal relationship is not fully understood. Unfortunately, treatment options are extremely limited and many are not diagnosed until metastasis occurs and the cancer has spread to other vital organs.
I am running the 2013 Boston Marathon with the Run for Research Team to help change the fate of those infected with liver cancer and other potentially fatal liver diseases through my own time and talent. Alongside my sister, Jeanine, we hope to reach our individual fundraising goals in memory of our dad. Please help me to reach my fundraising goal of $4,000 to benefit the American Liver Foundation. Any gift, large or small, is very much appreciated. Together, we can help to provide more research for devastating liver diseases, as well as providing education for patients and the general public regarding risk factors.
A world free of liver disease! That is why I am participating in the Liver Life Challenge. The Liver Life Challenge is an endurance sport training program that helps people like me train for a race while supporting the mission of the American Liver Foundation. In memory of someone who always supported us in all of our endeavors, my sister and I will run 26.2 miles for our dad and for all those who are still fighting.
Thank you for supporting the Run for Research 2013 on April 15, 2013!
The Liver Life Challenge is a celebration of my commitment to a world free of liver disease. Please help me make that goal a reality! I support the American Liver Foundation® because it:
