Jennifer Nebesky:

The Canadian Liver Foundation raises funds to bring research to life. And what that means is we support life-changing programs, fund research, advocate, and are the voice for the 1-in-4 living with liver disease across Canada.

There are over a hundred different diseases that affect the liver. The most common are non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, hepatitis A, B and C, and liver cancer.

 

Nem Maksimovic:

Liver disease is a silent killer. Liver disease affects 1-in-4 Canadians Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease affects close to eight million Canadians.it is considered the most common liver disease in Canada. Investing in the Canadian Liver Foundation helps us invest in liver health research. Liver health research is pivotal and extremely important to find a cure and hopefully better management techniques for all those living with liver disease in Canada.  

 

Jennifer Nebesky:

We couldn’t do the critical work we do without Federated Health Charites. Since 1991 the organization has been supporting the Canadian Liver Foundation, and that money has helped to ensure that we provide the critical support programs that are necessary for Canadians and Ontarians living with liver disease.

Ontario Public Service employees have funded life-changing programs. They funded life-changing research, and it’s important to the Canadian Liver Foundation that we are also there for the Ontario Public Service employees and their families because they are the 1-in-4 that are being impacted by liver disease.

 

Nem Maksimovic:

Liver disease presents many fears. It affects the individual, their family members and their caregivers throughout their journeys with liver disease. To the donors of the Ontario Public Service, every dollar that goes towards the Canadian Liver Foundation helps save lives. This means additional resources and educational tools for all Canadians living with liver disease, peer support networks and educational webinars for those looking to connect with individuals living or experiencing their same condition, as well as investing in life-saving liver health research to hopefully find a cure or better management techniques for liver disease in Canada.

 

Jennifer Nebesky:

The Federated Health Charities’ campaigns are different because they’ve provided the Canadian Liver Foundation with ongoing support, unrestricted revenue that allow us to build and develop programs that support Ontarians and Canadians alike, who are living with liver disease. We could not do this without Federated Health Charities and we are so grateful for that.
