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.

Walk on Washington 1998

This video shows clips from the Hepatitis Foundation's 1998 hepatitis conference in Washington D.C. which included the NHCC's first national hepatitis awareness rally ever held in the United States. Our rally was coordinated with HFI's annual conference that year at their request. (At the time the NHCC was called the "Nashville Hepatitis C Coalition" - the name change came later.)

The NHCC had originally planned to hold the first national rally for hepatitis C  independently in 1998, but when HFI learned of this they asked us to hold our event together with their yearly conference "so as not to conflict with each other's events". 

It had been our intention to call the rally "WAKE UP WASHINGTON" ever since the beginning of planning in late 1997, but HFI chose to "tone down" the name we'd picked and instead chose to call the mutual 1998 event "Walk on Washington".  Rather than make an issue of it we simply returned to using our own "WAKE UP WASHINGTON" name for every rally we've held since. 

It should be noted here that although the NHCC was at one time a supporter of HFI and had worked closely with them prior to this event, due to progressing differences in motivations and perceptions of what is truly in the the best interest of hepatitis patients, this was the first and last event the NHCC held in conjunction with any of HFI's activities. 

Two more national rallies for hepatitis C have been held by the NHCC since 1998, and both were hosted solely by the NHCC along with patients and families all over America. 

No longer is the NHCC in any way affiliated with HFI nor have we supported any of  their activities since 1998.

DO YOU HAVE TATTOOS?

They may be the source of more hepatitis C infections than previously thought
(especially older ones)!!

PLEASE READ:

TATTOO TIME BOMB

then go see your doctor and insist on being tested for hepatitis C!



INCARCERATED INDIVIDUALS PLEASE READ:

As much as we'd like to be able to provide information and support to individuals who are incarcerated, experience has shown that the majority of our mailings to correctional facilities never reach those who need them and are instead returned to us by the system.

We suggest instead that family members contact us and make arrangements themselves to distribute our information to their loved ones behind the walls. Thank you for understanding.
