On November 6,2001 I will join the American Liver Foundation to help end the devastating effects of liver disease by Running in the New York Marathon. By making a pledge on my behalf of as little as one dollar per mile,you are supporting research and local services to those affected with this unpredictable affliction.
As a husband and father I have a personal stake in this particular event. My wife Lisa has recently been diagnosis with incurable liver disease. Not only do I want to help her, but also the many others diagnosed daily with incurable liver disease .

Everyone is affected differently by liver disease at any age or lifestyle. As of August 24 at 11:43 am 111,918, sons,daughters, mothers and neighbors are waiting for a donor liver.
