FLAVORS OF TUCSON
The American Liver Foundation’s greatest focus is the health and wellbeing of liver patients and those who care for them. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in compliance with the CDC and government guidelines, we made the decision to suspend all ALF in-person gatherings in 2020, including our Flavors events.
We invite you to join us at Cuisine for a Cause, a virtual experience offering unique local and national engagement opportunities for the liver community and the hidden “foodie” in everyone. Please visit ALFCuisine.org to learn more.
EVENT DATE: October 1, 2020

Meet our 2020 National Flavors LIVEr Champion
Molly was born December 30, 2009; she was a healthy baby. We were thrilled our gorgeous baby girl had finally arrived. Twenty-four hours after she was born, jaundice set in and our happiness turned to fear. While jaundice is fairly normal in newborns, Molly’s jaundice was serious and life-threatening. Overnight, we were thrown from a happy euphoria into a deep despair. Over the course of the next five weeks, Molly underwent a series of blood draws, scans and diagnostic testing. As each day passed, her skin turned more yellow, she stopped gaining weight and became very agitated. No one can imagine the fear that was living inside us.
After weeks of tests, we finally received a diagnosis… Biliary Atresia.
