I was diagnosed of hepatitis in 2012 and I have tried all possible means to get cure but all to no avail, until i saw a post in a health forum about a herbal doctor from South Africa who prepare herbal medicine to cure all kind of diseases including hepatitis b virus, at first i doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try, when i contact this herbal doctor via his email, he prepared a herbal medicine and sent it to me via courier service, when i received this herbal medicine, he gave me step by instructions on how to apply it, when i applied it as instructed, i was cured of this deadly virus within 18-20 days of usage, I am now free from the virus, i was tasted negative. Contact this great herbal doctor via his email drlusandaherbal@gmail.com or website on www.drlusandaherbals.weebly.com Goodluck

The Hep B Foundation is a great nonprofit organization that cares about the health of Philadelphia and the diverse communities that make up this city. As a student volunteer for the Hep B Foundation I have seen first hand the care and effort that is put into planning every single event. From the Flash Mob in Love Park to Hepatitis B screenings throughout the city, I am constantly amazed and impressed by the work that this nonprofit organization does. Keep up the good work!

I have been volunteering with the Hepatitis B Foundation and partner organizations for over a year. The members of the organization are passionate and inspiring, and I have seen firsthand the positive impact they have on the Philadelphia communities that they serve. A recent Hep B screening event was expanded into a full-blown health fair with screening for hypertension, diabetes, dental, obesity, and glaucoma, plus free flu shots and appropriate referral services.

The Hepatitis B Foundation is the definition of a great nonprofit. This organization has created an environment not only here in Philadelphia, but throughout the country where the best research and public outreach efforts have come together to combat a disease that affects so many. The staff has worked tirelessly to bring much needed awareness to the cause and to ensure that everyone has access to information and testing. It is an honor to be able to help such a worthy cause and to be a part of such a wonderful team of individuals.

What an amazing and inspirational organization. In addition to serving the scientific community by housing a large number of research projects, the amount of public health outreach that is done by HBF is simply astounding. At both a national and local level, HBF seeks to raise awareness about Hepatitis B and its risks. I am proud to say that I have been a volunteer at several health screenings and the work that is being done at the granular community member level is simply heart-warming. Keep up the great work!
