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 - Alice is one of them.
Alice was only 4 days old when jaundice prompted her parents to bring her to the hospital. After a battery of invasive tests and procedures, Alice was diagnosed with an incurable liver disease called biliary atresia. She underwent emergency, life-saving surgery at just 68 days old. Without this surgery, she would not survive past her second birthday.
Alice is now an active, curious toddler, but she still goes for regular checkups and tests to monitor her condition. Since there is no cure for biliary atresia, it’s hard to know what the future will hold for Alice or other children with this and other liver diseases. Alice may one day need a liver transplant.
