Our mission is to raise money to: support public education, promote understanding and awareness of liver disease and support research, treatment and cure of liver diseases at the Saint Louis University Liver Center.
All funds generated by our fundraising efforts stay in St. Louis.
Each year we present these funds to the world renowned Saint Louis University Liver Center. Since 2003, we have presented the Saint Louis University Liver Center with more than $1,900,000 in donations. The contributions allow them to continue to make great strides in basic and clinical research in the treatment for all types of liver disease.
Reasons to support the friends of the Saint Louis University Liver Center:
•The Saint Louis University Liver Center enjoys worldwide recognition as a center of excellence.
•Hepatitis C affects 5 million people in the United States. One in 50 people have Hepatitis C and nearly two-thirds of those people do not know they have it.
•Hepatitis C can be diagnosed with a simple blood test and is curable in about 60% of patients.
•In addition to Hepatitis C, there are over 30 other liver diseases which can be diagnosed and for which there are treatments.
•The Friends have raised and donated more than $1.9 million for the SLULC since its inception. The funds help support the critical infrastructure of the Liver Center from faculty salaries to visiting professorships and patient-oriented seminars and research. By leveraging the donations of the Friends, the Liver Center is able to use the "seed money" as a match for larger grants from outside sources that generate $18 new dollars from outside the region for every $1 raised locally.
•All money raised by the Friends of the Saint Louis University Liver Center stays in the St. Louis area to support programs in education and research of liver diseases.
