Welcome to Lisa Boyette's Page
Thank you for your interest in my efforts on behalf of Curable at this year's Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community! I co-founded Curable (then SAVE JON) in 2014 to bring new therapies to the 30 million people worldwide suffering from rare disease. Curable is a research accelerator that coordinates large collaborative efforts to bring the best of Big Science and modern drug development technology to creating new therapies for rare, life-threatening diseases. Your support means so much to our organization and to me personally, since life-threatening rare disease impacts my family.
Please reach out to your contacts to raise awareness about our work, including our current campaign to cure Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), a rare disease of the liver and bile ducts. PSC affects up to 50,000 people in the US, and 75% of PSC patients also have Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), either ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. PSC patients are at significantly increased risk for developing cancer at an early age, like football legend Walter Payton and country music singer-songwriter Chris LeDoux, who both died of PSC and bile duct cancer.
Thank you for spreading the word, and please consider making a donation on my behalf to support our charity fundraising campaign!
