ALF promotes education, advocacy, support services and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease. ALF Desert Southwest provides a wide variety of these services including information and referral, education programs, support groups, exciting fundraising events, and an array of volunteer opportunities.

Mayo Clinic’s liver transplant doctors and surgeons use proven innovations to successfully treat people with liver failure and other complications of liver conditions. Their expertise with living-donor transplant, a fast-track recovery process and multiorgan transplants are part of why people turn to the Mayo Clinic Liver Transplant Program.
Support groups provide a place for individuals affected by a similar condition or circumstance to provide and receive support and share their experiences.
Not all support groups are facilitated by a medical professional. Some support groups are facilitated by 3rd party organizations and individuals in this region.
ALF also has identified virtual online support groups you can take advantage of by visiting this page.
