On October 11, 2011, Addilyn Hawks of Windsor was diagnosed with PFIC-2 (Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis Type-2), a rare genetic liver disease which causes liver failure. There is no cure for this terminal disease. Addilyn has severe cirrhosis or liver scarring, which results in poor liver function. The only way symptoms of this disease can be reversed is with liver transplant. Addilyn will need a new liver to save her life, and a Greeley clothing store for kids is trying to help, but it’s very costly.
Volunteers in Fort Collins, Windsor, Loveland and Greeley, Colorado are raising funds for transplant patients like local baby, Addilyn.
