Celebrate those affected by liver disease

Our virtual Celebration Wall is a way that we honor and commemorate patients who have been affected by liver disease. It is our hope that the Celebration Wall will serve to fight the stigma that has forever plagued liver disease and serve as a beacon of hope to those still battling liver disease.

To be featured on the Celebration Wall or to have a family member/friend featured, please email ejensen@liverfoundation.org or call 312-377-9030.
