A Message From the Great Lakes Division Staff

Welcome to the Great Lakes Division of the American Liver Foundation (ALF).
The Great Lakes Division includes Illinois and Michigan. The Great Lakes Division is a valuable resource that can provide support and information. Our mission at ALF is to facilitate, advocate, and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.

Thirty million Americans, or 1 in 10, are personally affected by nearly 100 types of liver disease. You can inherit liver disease, have it result from an anomaly found at birth or develop it later on in life. It does not discriminate; it affects individuals without any consideration of age, gender, ethnicity or socioeconomic background. A diagnosis of liver disease can be overwhelming and frightening and we can help. We have a wide variety of information and educational programs to support you, your family, and your community.

We also have a wide variety of events where you can get involved and contribute financially to the growth of our Division’s programs. Our fundraising events include, but are not limited to:

  • FLAVORS—a unique culinary event that will showcase some of the premier chefs and restaurants. Each chef will prepare tableside, a signature, five-course, gourmet dinner for a table of at least 10 guests.
  • Liver Life Challenge—commit to running a marathon; in return for you raising funds to support our mission, we provide a qualified & motivating coach, team of supporters, ongoing clinics, and other great incentives.
  • Liver Life Walk—form a team with your family, friends, coworkers, etc. and join us at one of our many Walk events. It’s a family-friendly event that brings awareness and raises important funds to support our programs.

Your support of our division can help in so many ways. We provide:

  • Community education programs on liver disease and liver wellness
  • Professional education for health care providers on liver disease
  • Informational packets on numerous topics like hepatitis C, fatty liver disease, liver transplantation, PBC and many others.
  • Support groups
  • Funding of vital research to prevent, treat and cure liver diseases
  • Referrals to healthcare providers
