BENEFITING: AMERICAN LIVER FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: AMERICAN LIVER FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
I'll be running in the 2017 United Airlines Half for my Dad, who recently just kicked cihrrosis's butt and got a brand new liver. I'm also running for anyone who has ever struggled with liver disease or supported a family member through their struggle.
The past 2 years spent watching my Dad's condition progress and demand control over his life felt impossible. My family and I feel truly blessed to have been given back the man we love and can't wait to see him hit the golfcourse again (only to later swear it off forever ;)) and get back to doing the things that fill his life with joy.
Unfortunately, we know that not everyone who struggles with liver disease is as lucky as we have been. I hope that by running and raising funds for the American Liver Foundation, other's will learn the importance of funding research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.
Your contribution and words of encouragement mean so very much!
