Please Donate Today to Support Liv Shimanovsky!

Support Liv and those living with Nemaline Myopathy

$2,550 towards $3,000

As many of you know, my friend Boris' daughter, Liv, was diagnosed with Nemaline Myopathy (NM) at 7 months old. NM is a rare neuromuscular disease that makes basic life tasks such as breathing, swallowing, coughing, sitting and walking difficult, if not impossible.

Liv just turned 7 years old and remains a silly, sassy and determined little girl. Despite her immense challenges, she faces each day with a smile, looking forward to making her brothers laugh, playing with her friends, and doing anything involving the Dodgers.

After almost losing Liv when she aspirated on a plane 2 years ago, the Shimanovskys had no choice but think about the devastating reality of her disease. Liv worked incredibly hard to regain her strength and continues to work tirelessly through daily therapies. As she gets older, she is more aware of her differences and and her frustration with the limitations of her body.

Boris and his wife Sharon are hosting a fundraiser at Cyclebar and I am jumping on a bike to raise money for research that remains their only hope of providing Liv with a longer and healthier life.

Please join me in raising funds for desperately needed research as I show my support on a bike!

It takes less than a minute and just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal the LoveLiv Cycle for Strength fundraiser.
