Join Our Burgundy Challenge
Global Liver Institute is proud to be kicking off Liver Cancer Awareness Month by introducing The Burgundy Challenge: #LivingBurgundy!
Here’s how it works:
Spread awareness about Liver Cancer by snapping a photo of you living your life in your burgundy- this could be anything from a photo of you in a pose in yoga class, to cooking your favorite meal, to a picture of you walking your dog (extra points if your dog is also wearing burgundy). Then, post the picture with the hashtag #LivingBurgundy and tag three friends in your post to do the same. It’s that easy!
You’ll be helping to raise awareness and helping thousands of people facing the challenges of liver cancer. Let them know that they don’t have to face it alone, show them your support.
Update your Facebook profile picture with our #LivingBurgundy frame to show your support!
GLI is promoting awareness and action with a month-long media campaign using the hashtag #OctoberIs4Livers to bring patients, survivors, caregivers, advocates, and experts together across all social media platforms.
Follow us on our Global Liver Institute Facebook page /GlobalLiver, Instagram and Twitter @GlobalLiver to stay up to date with our #OctoberIs4Livers events.
Advocacy Organization Landscape Assessment:
Liver Cancer Resources
Liver cancer is the second most deadly cancer in the world, accounting for 788,000 deaths in 2015. It is also the only cancer to have increasing incidence and mortality rates. The risk factors for liver cancer, which include hepatitis B and C, obesity, and diabetes, are increasingly prevalent, and account in part for the rise in liver cancer diagnoses and deaths. The aim of this report is to examine the landscape of liver cancer resources available to both patients and healthcare professionals and scientists.
Liver cancer is on the rise despite increasing number of treatments, experts call for liver disease patients to get screened for cancer every 6 months.
Reimagine Liver Cancer - Blue Sky Day
In 2015, this human-centered design workshop brought together diverse perspectives including patients, caregivers, researchers, and clinicians to understand and shape the future of liver cancer as GLI looked to define its policy and programming agenda.
We can raise awareness and change perceptions of liver disease through education and engagement. See a list of partners who have helped us make a difference.
