I have decided to run the Portland 10 Miler on April 26th, 2020 and wanted to support an organization that is very important and personal to me. I was diagnosed with PSC (primary sclerosing cholangitis) when I was 14 years old and this disease is the focus of PSC Partners. It is a rare liver disease that currently has no treatments or cures and needs funding to advance its research. I had the honor of attending a conference that was put on by PSC Partners Seeking a Cure in 2016 and the research that was being done was amazing. There is much more to be done and I wanted to support a cause and organization I believe in!
Thank you to anyone who donates or looks up PSC because of this link. Making people aware of this disease is just as important!
