Liver Mommas & Families is a proud partner of Help Hope Live, Liverspace, UPMC Donate Life: Living Donor Transplant, Colleen's BA 5K, Transplant Families, Northwest Kidney Kids, Child Life Coffee, and The Lamp!
Help Hope Live is a nonprofit that supports community-based fundraising for people with unmet medical and related expenses due to organ and cell transplants or catastrophic injuries and illnesses.
Liver Space is designed to strengthen the community of liver disease groups by facilitating communication with others and serving as a bridge to experts.
Colleen's BA 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk was established in memory of Colleen Mitchel, who was born in 1993 with biliary atresia (BA - the most serious liver disease of infancy and childhood) and died in 2013 at 19 years old, while awaiting another liver transplant. Proceeds from the event will support biliary atresia research at the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Liver Center in Baltimore, MD and organ donation awareness.
Northwest Kidney Kids provides youth and family camps, regional activities for families to connect, and supports clinics in treating children with chronic kidney disease. They also award Suzanne Billings Memorial Scholarship annually.
Transplant Families provides families of pediatric transplant information about existing support groups and web pages that might help them during, before and after the transplant procedure.
UPMC and Donate Life America partnership to raise awareness of living donation and create a community where people can find information and connect.
As parents of a pediatric liver transplant patient, the founders of Child Life Coffee are dedicated to expanding Child Life Programs in hopes that every hospitalized child and family will receive the support they did.
