Hepatitis C Do Not Be Affraid

Do not let Hepatitis C get you down! You need to get a good support system around you! You need your family and friends. You need to also reach out to a local suport group and if there isn't one in your area start one. That is what I did 6 years ago and we started with just two people but once the word got out we grew like crazy.

Open Open House

Well I am getting ready for our Open Open House that is this next Friday, April 15th from 6pm to 8pm. It will be held in the Dekalb Medical Arts Building next to Dekalb Memorial Hospital at 1316 E. 7th Street in Auburn, Indiana 46706 in conference room 303. We are going to have lots of informational packets, refreshments, a KidZone for the children to play at while there parents are learning all they can about Hepatitis C. We really hope that the public will be open to this night and come out and get informed. I really pray that the stigma can be erased on this disease so that everyone will not want to hide anymore and know it is okay and that just because you have Hepatitis C doesn't mean you are a bad person. Those of you living with Hepatitis C are just as normal as those who do not have it.  I have so many of you in group but there is so many of you who will not come out to group or any of the functions that we have because you are afraid. Well stop being afraid and reach out to those of us who know exactly what you are going through. 

On a different note I had a cat scan on my liver yesterday and will soon be having my 3rd liver biopsy. I pray that I still am at stage 3 and not at stage 4. I will stay positive no matter where I am at. As I need to be strong and live a long time I am mom and dad to my children and God still has a plan for me in bringing awareness to the public about Hepatitis C. And I pray that I can find a cure for my 12 year old daughter who is positive also.

Well I will close for now I hope you all have a very good day and know that I am praying for each of you.
