“Give It Up” for International NASH Day!

For #NASHDAY I’m asking everyone I know to “Give It Up” for NASH Awareness. It could be sugar, coffee, alcohol, TV, politics…literally anything! Write about what you are giving up on the sign attached and share it all over social media next Wednesday June 12th to help spread the word.

And if you can take the $5 that would have gotten you a cup of coffee and instead donate it to the American Liver Foundation’s NASH Day page, you can help raise awareness, provide education and support, and help fund treatments for NASH patients in the future.

Hope to see you all Giving It Up on June 12th!

My American Liver Foundation NASH Advocacy Video

A few months ago I was honored to take part in an American Liver Foundation effort to educate and raise awareness for NASH. I travelled to University of San Diego’s Altman Clincial and Translational Research Institute where I recorded a video telling my mom’s story so that others could learn and benefit from our loss. I was joined by a panel of individuals currently living with various stages of NASH and a few distinquished medical experts in the field.

The videos are finally being released as part of our leadup to the 2nd International NASH Day on June 12th. You can watch the entire video below.

The terrific folks at The NASH Education Program have worked with providers and advocates across the industry to organize this worldwide day of action to raise awareness for NASH.  They have asked me to tell my personal story to help provide the perspective of someone who has dealt with loss due to NASH.

I’m truly honored to be a part of this fantastic event.  For full information see the PDF here.
