My Misson Statement: Our Voices Heard
I am providing an outreach to raise awareness about Hepatitis C. Providing the materials nessesary to give to those for Education, promoting Liver health and disease prevention along with advocating for all those infected by the Hepatitis C Virus.
I realize there will be many obsticles and challenges along the way but with your help we can make it through!
The Reason for this Awareness Group: Education is the Key
Many people living and working may not know they have hepatitis C, a disease that destroys the liver and even as we know it.
The Hepatitis C Virus infection persists in 85% of cases, and often has no symptoms until liver damage has occurred, many years after infection.
It too can cause cirrhosis, liver cancer and liver failure and it is responsible for 10,000 - 18,000 deaths per year.
HCV is spread through blood-to-blood contact only and we need to educate others that it's not by a touch or kiss. (If you had a blood transfusion between 1980-1990, get tested for the Hepatitis C virus.)
