All kinds of hepatitis C information

 

   
 


Hepatitis C is difficult to understand, and there are LOTS of "experts" out there who are more than willing to take advantage of the uninformed.  Please feel free to call our National Support Line for more detailed and personal attention related to hepatitis C (number listed above).

The folks who keep the NHCC in operation are unique people. ALL are volunteers who help fund our daily operations, tend to our telephone support lines, attend health fairs, and do just about anything necessary to help the NHCC continue to operate. These folks are required to have extensive and personal hepatitis C experience behind them before speaking to patients or family members about the disease, but this is just so we can make sure that what's shared is honest, trustworthy, and that our reputation remains stellar and accurate as always.

Times are difficult for most folks and money is tight. However, we too have significant expenses just keeping the NHCC in operation, and this is why it's so important that we reach out to good people like yourselves who will help us remain active for the "cause".

Please remember us in your prayers as well as with your financial contributions, and we promise that we'll do our very best to be here when you need us!

The NHCC is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
Financial donation are tax-deductible.

Kathy's Story
(by Kathy)

I found out that I had hep C in December of 1996. I was pregnant at the time with my 2nd child, and because of the hep C my obgyn told me I should not keep her because she will have the disease. I did a lot of research at that time to find out if I was really sentencing my child to death as my Dr had said. After a lot of research and much soul searching my husband and I decided to trust that God knew what he was doing. I had my daughter in August of 1997 and she is negative for hep C (thank God my husband and my son is also). I did decide to not have any more children and had surgery because I felt I could not take that chance again. 

I do not know where I got Hep C from....I was told there are really only three way to get it and as far as I know I have never had blood or blood products given to me (it is possible tho I do not remember much of my childhood) I have never even seen drugs much less done them and I have only had two sexual partners my entire life (both are negative). So I guess it doesn't matter where I got it just that I do. (I do believe that much more research needs to be done on the subject of how it is transmitted).

I have tried two types of interferon but I am allergic to them.  I am awaiting new treatment as of this time. I also am fighting social security  to see me as disabled. I am feeling a lot of effects from hep C even tho most documents say it is not that common.  I am tired a lot and it is enough just to take care of two children much less work.  I believe I will overcome this as I have been through alot in my short life and I will survive this too. My favorite saying is "This too shall pass" I say it many times a day. lol

Thank you all for listening to the beginning of my story....I do not know what is to come but I know there is alot more life in me :)

God Bless you all and take care of yourselves
Kathy
