Did You Know?

The liver is the body’s largest filter and performs 500 functions, including removing toxins like alcohol from the blood.

What is Healthy Drinking?

Stick to 1 standard drink daily for women and 2 standard drinks daily for men or less. The liver can only process a certain amount of alcohol at a time, so avoid binge drinking which is 4 or more drinks within two hours.

Why You Should Go Dry

  • Give your liver a rest! The liver can only process a certain amount of alcohol at a time. When someone has too much to drink, the alcohol left unprocessed by the liver circulates through the bloodstream and starts affecting the heart and brain.

  • Chronic alcohol abuse causes destruction of liver cells, which results in scarring of the liver (cirrhosis), alcoholic hepatitis and may even lead to liver cancer.

  • When you loose the booze and take a break from drinking you’ll get brighter skin, deeper sleep, a slimmer waist, more energy, and a happier liver.

Meet our '21 Go Dry National LIVEr Champion

When our daughter Hanna was born, we were overcome with joy and quickly announced her arrival on Facebook, called family and friends, and even scheduled a family visit to the hospital.

As my husband and I were enjoying our time with two-day-old Hanna, our nurse was performing a routine jaundice screening. Right afterwards, she said that Hanna was jaundiced and had to be sent to the NICU for additional testing. Her liver labs were elevated, and we knew that something was very wrong. The jaundice could not be cured by a light lamp. The doctors planned a liver biopsy, which led to a surgery, which finally led to a diagnosis — Biliary Atresia.

The Cause

ALF’s mission is to promote education, advocacy, support services and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.

Founded in 1976, the ALF is the nation’s largest patient advocacy organization for people living with liver disease. ALF reaches nearly three million people each year through advocacy, education, support services and research via its national office and an active online presence. Recognized as a trusted voice for those battling liver disease, ALF also operates a national toll-free helpline, educates patients, policymakers and the public, and provides grants to early-career investigators to find cures for liver disease. To date, ALF has provided nearly $27 million in support to more than 870 researchers.

Every gift makes a difference and helps us to fulfill our mission. Because of your support we are moving one step closer to a world free of liver disease.
