I felt devastated when the Bonfils Blood Center called and said that my blood donation was "red flagged". Further testing confirmed that I had a blood-borne virus. I had HCV (Hepatitus C). After thoroughly investigating the pros and cons of viral treatment for HCV and, following much deliberation with my family members and closest friends, I chose to undergo viral treatment. The final two months of my viral treatment program were an especially difficult time, physically and mentally. It was then that I began to implement the outside support resources offered through various online organizations and pharmaceutical companies.
And it was the HEPC CONNECTION website that proved to be the most invaluable resource for me. It was there that I first connected with one of the local support groups for HCV that the HEPC CONNECTION sponsors. That next month, I went to the support group meeting. What this type of support offers is profound in its value and effect. It is a constant, a comfort for me and for my loved ones, and, i surmise, for the other support group attendees. i have been going regularly ever since.
