If your odds of winning the lottery were 1 in 4, you would rush to buy a ticket. But what if those same odds represented your chance of developing a serious liver disease? Suddenly, ‘beating the odds’ becomes a matter of life and death. 1 in 4 are the odds facing an estimated eight million Canadians from infants to seniors. But with your help, we can change them.
For the first time, Montréal will host a LIVERight Gala, happening November 3rd, 2017!

Thierry Olsthoorn (Story from his mom's own words)
Thierry's had just celebrated his 11th birthday when one fine morning as he was getting ready for school, I noticed that his eyes were slightly tinged yellow. For a few days I kept asking my family, 'Do his eyes look yellow to you?' Bu no one else seemed to noticed so I tried to put it out of my mind. Until the morning he woke up and his skin colour matched his eyes.
Events snowballed within a few hours after that; family clinic, CLSC for blood test, almost immediate results, the local hospital waiting for Thierry's admission! Thierry was transferred to Sainte-Justine University Hospital where an early biopsy revealed that he had auto-immune hepatitis. Quickly a regimen of mediations ensued which Thierry will probably have to take for the rest of his life.
Thierry continues to be treated at CHUM Ste. Justine, he is in the absolute best possible hands with his specialist and, thankfully, he is able to lead a normal life. Thierry has just entered high school and is really excited about the science program. For him now, the sky is the limit!
