Fundraising Honor Roll

Dear Family and Friends,

Last year, my family and I were at the Boston Marathon to cheer on family and friends that were there running. At that time, I decided that one of my goals for 2014 was going to be to run the Boston Marathon. I have chosen to raise money and run with a team on behalf of The Liver Foundation, a cause that is close to my heart.

On April 21st, I will run and I will remember how my brother was given a new lease on his life with a partial liver transplant. The donor, remarkably, was my brother-in-law. Our family will forever feel grateful for this remarkable surgery that has saved our brother. I am committed to helping others suffering from Liver disease. Every dollar I raise will go to the efforts of The Liver Foundation, helping over 30 million Americans that are currently living with this disease. The statistics are alarming:

  • Liver cancer is one of the few primary cancers on the rise in the United States.
  • Approximately 5.4 million Americans are chronically infected with hepatitis B or hepatitis C. About 65% and 75% , respectively, are unaware that they are infected.
  • It is estimated that up to 25% of the U.S. population could have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease--a condition that can lead to life-threatening damage.

By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping The Liver Foundation provide community-based education, research, support, and advocacy related to helping prevent and treat liver disease. Thank you in advance for any support you are able to offer to my cause. Donating is easy! Just click the "Donate" button to get started.

 

Thank you for supporting the Run for Research 2014 on April 21, 2014!

The Run for Research 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:

  • Advocates on behalf of 30 million Americans with liver disease on the federal, state, and local levels.
  • Provides education programs, support services, and outreach activities that reach more than 200,000 individuals annually and raise awareness on liver disease prevention and management.
  • Is the largest non-governmental supporter of liver disease research in the U.S. and since 1979, the American Liver Foundation Research Awards Program has provided more than $24 million to more than 750 qualified scientists and physicians.
