On March 26, 2014, a contingent of 10 patient advocates and ALF staff will make their voices heard in Washington as they urge members of Congress to make liver disease research a funding priority, improve access and delivery of care and address the burden of this hidden epidemic that affects millions of Americans.
They will be representing the American Liver Foundation at the Seventh Annual Liver Capitol Hill Day sponsored by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases.
Josh Hanks will be there in honor of his four-year old son Cooper, who was born with biliary atresia and at 16 months, received a liver transplant. Paul Bolter and Gina Pollichino will also be on hand to represent the growing number of people living with hepatitis C.
