Liver disease affects children, women and men with equal and sometimes fatal consequences. Today, 1 in 4 Canadians may be affected by liver disease and many don’t even know it. Tragically, by the time liver disease is detected it is often too late as severe liver damage has already occurred.
Founded in 1969, the Canadian Liver Foundation (CLF) was the first organization in the world devoted to providing support for research and education into the causes, diagnoses, prevention and treatment of all liver diseases. The CLF is the only non-government organization funding all forms of liver disease research in Canada; unfortunately in any given year we are only able to fund 20% of all qualified research grant applications we receive.
Imagine, if any of those unfunded projects had the answers to early diagnosis, treatment or the cures we are looking for. We are looking for passionate volunteers to join our effort in raising awareness of liver disease, as well as funds to deliver free public education programs and support life-saving research.
