My Message

There are no words to describe how liver disease has changed our family.  Larry waited 4 long years for his first liver transplant after finally being diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis in Nov. 2006.  He was such an advocate for Organ Donation and lived each day with gratitude for the second chance he was given on Jan.13, 2011 when he received his new liver.  We were the first family in Western Canada to meet our donor family face to face!

Our lives were so blessed by the unselfish decision of Dick's family to donate his organs.  Unfortunately the PSC returned just past the 5 year anniversary and Larry was very ill for a year until he was finally approved for a second transplant in Feb. 2017.  Unfortunately another liver wasn't available in time and although they tried in April to do the second transplant there were too many complications and the transplant was aborted.  We lost him on April 25. 

We are walking to honor his memory and his fight, to improve research into liver disease and to promote organ donation so that more families aren't ripped apart by liver disease.

Please support us in our walk and make a difference for all those still fighting.

Any contribution helps, and all donations are tax deductible.
