Connection to Liver Disease
In January 2019, shortly after the birth of their twins Stokely and Sadie, daughter Sadie was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia. She underwent a successful liver transplant a few months later and is now doing well. The Sellers family became involved with ALF in 2021 when Ellen and Bakari served as Co-Chairs of the National Legacy Gala Honorary Committee. Her platform has helped recruit leaders in (and to) the liver community to help raise awareness and funding. Ellen’s gratitude for the advancements made in pediatric liver disease and access to healthcare that saved Sadie’s life motivates Ellen to work with ALF to ensure all families facing similar challenges have access to the best care and resources to achieve the same positive outcomes for their children.
