Review for THE HEP C CONNECTION, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Volunteer & I serve on the advocacy committee.
