Charity Spotlight: Funding Research

Posted on

researchSue is a customer who works at Hager Books around the corner from our store. Recently her nephew was diagnosed with a chronic liver disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC). Before his illness he was an avid athlete, in his second year of college on a baseball scholarship.

Sue and her family discovered that very little is known about how to treat PSC, so they undertook the huge task of raising enough money to fund medical research. They recently held a fundraiser, to which Secret Garden donated. So far Sue and her family have raised $33,000 of their $50,000 goal!

To donate to their goal, please visit the Canadian Liver foundation at Sue also emphasized the importance of becoming an organ donor. She said, “It is the greatest gift you can give and can save many lives!”
