Join us in Toronto for Stroll for Liver!
Saturday, June 2, 2018
Help us change the future for Canadians with liver disease! Join us for the Stroll for Liver –a family friendly, community-based walk/run event dedicated to raising funds for liver research and education.
1 in 4 Canadians may be affected by liver disease – Shirley is one of them.
My name is Shirley, I am a 43 year-old mom to three kids, ages 15, 13, and 9. In 2004, I was diagnosed with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), an autoimmune disease which destroys the small bile ducts of the liver. At the time of my diagnosis, I was told by my doctor that in about 10 years, I would need a liver transplant. I was afraid of the end stage of my disease, of what my kids would have to go through—I wanted time to freeze.
In 2012 (8 years after my diagnosis), I was at the end stage of my illness; I was put on a transplant wait list. Two years later I got the great news that my only sister was a match to be my living donor! I remember we all cried so much, there were tears of joy, knowing that I would see my kids and my nieces grow up, and that I would be given a second chance to create memories and reach milestones with them.
