Passion & Persistence Result in 2 Amazing Events

Back in February we told you about Lisa Simpson who lost her brother Nicky John to bile duct cancer 21 short days after diagnosis in April of 2014 and how she wanted to do something in his honor to raise awareness.

Motivated to make a difference and spread awareness of this silent, fast acting cancer, Lisa’s passion and persistence resulted in not one but two amazing events.

On March 7, 2015 she planned and organized an event that included appetizers, a raffle and all things green in honor of bile duct cancer awareness, raising $8,692.00.

On April 12, 2015, Lisa organized a 5K walk/run in Bliss Woods, Illinois with nearly 100 participants and raised over $5,000 for a grant total (between the two events) of nearly $14,000!

BILIevers like Lisa Simpson bring us one steps closer to finding advanced methods of early detection, treatments and cures for Hepatobiliary cancers. Amazing work Lisa!

Funds raised will go to support the continued efforts of our foundation.

Check out a few of the photos below from Lisa’s 5k walk/run in honor of her brother Nicky John.
