     On behalf of our family, we would personally like to thank you for supporting this foundation which has been created in memory of our sons, Brendan and Liam.


     The Brendan & Liam Shanahan Foundation is non-profit organization whose mission is to ease the burden that families face who have chronically and terminally ill children, along with helping fund research for Alpers' Disease, which our sons Brendan & Liam were stricken with.  There is currently no treatment or cure for Alpers.  Many families endure high medical costs as well as struggling with income due to the needs of their children.  Through all of your support and generosity, these families will receive the help they deserve, and so greatly need.
