My mom lost her battle to Hepatic Encephalopathy on August 8, 2013. This August marks the one year anniversary of her passing. This first year has been extremely hard in all aspects, holidays, birthdays, new jobs, new life ambitions, etc. I decided instead of allowing the one year mark be a tear filled, sorrowful day I would be proactive and make it more positive. I've decided to put together a 3 day walk to remember and honor my mom and also raise money for research and advocacy for others suffering from a liver disease. We will be making the trek from Camas, WA to Bend, OR (167 miles) on August 6th. My hope is to make this an annual event and raise money in my mom's name! No donation is too small and any and everything is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
