“I’m basically the first NBA player that played that I know of with a liver disease, and I’m trying to be an advocate for it,” he said. With the support of the NBPA Foundation, Carroll is in the process of creating an informative and interactive educational component on his foundation’s website. The purpose is to provide a fun learning guide for the youth, ages 5-18, on the use, function and importance of the liver. They’ll also discover the 100-plus liver diseases that affect people their own age.

DeMarre Carroll: “The day I signed with the Toronto Raptor was one of the happiest and nervous days of my life. I was put in a situation to help a Franchise grow and be a key piece to meet the objective. I had opportunities to sign somewhere else for a bigger contract but that wasn’t the ideal situation. I had to make a decision between two franchises and I chose Toronto. The reason I chose Toronto was because they had a team that I felt could get to the next level. They also had loyal fans that support their team through ups and downs. I felt the city of Toronto had more to offer in so many ways.”
DeMarre Carroll: “First playoff game we lost, with me playing 18-20 min. I was so disappointed with myself and was questioning whether or not I made the right decision of coming back and playing even though I knew…. I’m not healthy. Eventually, I got text from my teammates who expressed….we need you to start. We don’t care how healthy you are. We want you to start because you are valuable to our team 100 percent or not. Those calls gave me the confidence and helped me mentally in so many ways. I got the start and we won next 2 games. We went on to win the series but I was hit with nagging injuries every game.”
