Run, Walk and Roll 5K helps those living with complex illnesses

This dynamic live and virtual event became a reality in 2018, thanks to Grosse Pointe’s Claire Sheeren. She created the fundraiser out of a tremendous love for her older sister, Elizabeth, who has fought a chronic, progressive and incurable immune disease for nearly a decade. Used to improve the quality of life for patients and families battling complex medical conditions, palliative care involves treatments that focus on the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of patients with chronic or life-threatening illnesses.

ClickOnDetroit - Teen's health battle inspires other teenagers (4/16/15)

We first introduced you to Elizabeth Sheeren last fall....Keeping her going is a treatment called intravenous immunoglobulin therapy (IVIG) that she receives every four weeks at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor. IVIG is made from blood donations -- the pooled antibodies of up to one thousand blood donors. That means literally tens of thousands of strangers are helping to save Elizabeth's life.
