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 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.
