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.

Elizabeth's Story
By Elizabeth

I am a 42yr. old woman who has lived a survivors life. I say survivor because I cannot allow myself to become a victim. I have had a lot of medical problems over the years. Allow me to tell you the highlights. At the age of 25 I was diagnosed with cancer of the bladder. I had no family, no husband no anyone, just God and me, even though I did not realize God was watching over me, he was. I had no insurance, I was a waitress at the time, the only way I could get medical care was to be part of a research study program for the American Cancer Society. I signed a contract with them, allowing them to do experimental treatments on me a month. In exchange they gave me free radiation. I had so many procedures done I could not even begin to tell you. It was not a walk in the park. 

The radiation was terrible. But I did it. On and off for 12 yrs. At that point they wanted to take fluid from the base of my skull to see what effect the long term radiation had on my brain. Enough! I quit. 1 yr. later I had a cell count done and I showed no sign of cancer. A miracle. In 96 I was diagnosed with hepatitis C. Again I had no insurance so more experiments, Interferon this time. 1 yr. lots of side effects no change. 2 wks. before Christmas I was in the hospital, liver and kidney failure. They said there was nothing else they could do, they sent me home to die. That was when I took control, hit the computer and found this web site. 

I went on the herbs. Today I feel 10 yrs. younger and I live a full active life. I was so grateful that, I became the TX. state rep. For the National Hepatitis C Coalition. I have put everything I have into giving back to the world and trying to help others. I love my life and it is very rewarding. Of course I still have Hep C. but I am thankful I do have it. I have purpose and I know God has blessed me many times over. For these wonderful gifts I have, I give the glory to God first, and then to all my fellow heppers they are my family. Thanks so much to Kev & his wonderful wife I can honestly say they are my friends. Forever grateful, Elizabeth
