Review from Guidestar
January 15, 2014

I will be forever grateful to the Hep C Connection. They have helped me in so many ways. They provide free Hep C blood tests, in which you will have the results within 30 minutes. Just call or email them to find out how to make an appointment. They also have a free "hot line" service, where people can call & ask questions about Hep C. In addition, they provide literature about the disease & where to find clinical trials. They also have a list of support groups in the Denver area, which meet monthy. The support groups are very helpful & I recommend that people take advantage of this wonderful service.
It would be wonderful if every city across this nation & across the world, had their own Hep C Connection. We are blessed to have them in the Denver area, but even if you live elsewhere, you can contact them & they will do their best to help you find support in or near your home town. Please donate some money to them, whatever you can afford. They were there for me at one of the most difficult times in my life & I will never forget them. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to the Hep C Connection.
Sincerely,
C

I would recommend anyone with Hep C or anyone touched by this disease to contact this organization for support.

The Great!

I made my first contact with the Hep C Connection when I started researching information about treatment options. The volunteers were very supportive and friendly. After I finished treatment I started helping out with the help line to share my experience with others. I loved working with the people at the Hep C Connection and have become very close the people there. I am hoping to help out with with another Desserts and Delights silent auction this year.

I got Hepatitis C from tainted blood during a transfusion in Viet Nam in 1969. Upon being diagnosed with Hep C in 1996 I began attending a support group sponsered by the Hep C Connection. I soon realized that I was more suited to giving support than receiving it. Since then I have suppoted the Hep C Connection in any way that I can. Hep C is a disease that is, at best, misunderstood. The "Connection" provides the public with acurate information about the disease but I think most importantly they provide free testing to anyone who wants it. There is no doubt that early detection is critical in combating Hep C. I had a liver transplant in 2004 and am now disease free. Thanks, in part, to the Hep C Connection. I would encourage everyone, whether you have Hep C or not, to support the "Connection" in their work. It is the best way I know of to stop the spread of a terminal disease that affects millions of people.

The Great!

the support that I have received as well as the opportunity to help in many ways. Whether it is speaking to community action groups to get our story out, marching to increase exposure and awareness or simply sitting in state budget committee meetings to demonstrate support.

not change a thing. Although I could think of lots of things we could do if we had the budget such as suppoting more research for a cure.
