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.

Deb and Bill's Story
(by Debi )

   My name is Debi and I am 45, with 2 children 9&14.  My diagnosis came in October 2001.  Even though I had encephalitis of the brain so bad, I didn't know my husband Bill after 15 years, or my kids Branden and Dylan.  Even though I was seeing doctors, they kept giving Bill the wrong diagnosis, until I went into a coma in October of 2000. 

One thing I guess I feel lucky about is after the coma, I did finally got Social Security disability, which from my understanding, others are having a rough time getting.  I haven't worked since August of 1999 because of the skin breakouts, gall bladder disease, etc.  Yes, you do have to be almost dead to qualify for Social Security.  At this time I don't qualify for my husband's insurance and I make $20.00 too much to go on Medicaid.  So I no longer go to any doctors after taking out bankruptcy for the $100,000.00 worth of hospitalization.  We did lose our home and our children had to live with their grandmother for a year during the time I didn't know who they were.

We've now moved, my family is back together and that alone keeps me going.  My brother also had hepatitis and left us at the age of 39.
