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.

HepFest time is coming soon!!!! Whooo Hooooo!

Okay Well we are off and running for this years event. INDIANA'S 5th ANNUAL HEPFEST.    Yeaaaa hawwww!!! Doctor says no stress so any volunteers? I am hiring some help? So call or shoot me an email to let me know if there is any takers.  E-mail is ladytruckr@mchsi.com . Or you can call at 260-927-8180.

We have the location and the free blood test vouchers for three locations and a two week grace period too, and we have the time set. Anddddddddddddd the rest I am working on. The live music is going to be there and the State Senator Dennis Kruse and a couple other Government officials I pray. Also some health speakers. There will be food, fun, learning, awesome new friends to meet who understand how you feel inside, a great park with clowns for kids to play with and get their faces pained. Or not the clowns for the kids who have the clown thing. But anyways it is going to be an awesome day to stop in and become aware or more aware about what the word Hepatitis C. There will be a Free Hepatitis C blood Test Voucher at the event. You don't have to stay but you and tell your friends and church families about the free blood test. it will start on June 23rd and the vouchers are good til July 7th.  there is 3 locations on there for them to go to. No registration, just take the vouchers straight to the Lab and they will test you. And the state health department will test the blood. And hopefully you don't get the bad call. But there is so many many of you out there that are at risk. One little drop of Hepatitis C blood can live for 30 days with live virus on it. There is not suppose to be a Stigma on the disease. because it's a disease all crowds and classes, high income families to low income families. Hepatitis C knows no bounders to whom may have it or ever came in close contact with someones blood, Vietnam Vets should all be tested. If you work in the Medical Field and have EVER had a needle poke, if you have gotten a Tattoo or Body Peircing in an un safe shop. Or if you ever have gotten any form of blood product, such as Organ transplant, or Kidney dialosos or Gotten a blood transfusion. That is how I got mine and little Logan Leigh got her's because they tried to pull all 11lbs and 5ozs (o:  . and they cut her behind the ear and she then was emergancy C-Setion. so came blood to blood with mine. Okay back to others who need tested. If your an Officer of the law and have grabed someones licesnse with out a glove on and that be a Drug user using his drugs who knows how. They need to be tested. You baby boomers wipe your pride off your shoulders and if you were a lets say partier then you will want to get tested. I mean the event is based on Community Awareness. We want the word Hepatitis C to be in everyone ears and everyone that just has that "well maybe " thought in their mind, please come get a voucher and leave as many as you need, they are free, and last for two weeks, or come and stay the day from 10 am til 3 pm it should be awesome. For all ages. Heck I am going to be 50 and I have it there is older then me too and then there is like my daughter age 13. Everyone is welcome even those folks who are just plain curious!!! There will be 2 out of th 5 Hepatitis C Quilts in the world showcased at the event for all to see, even make your own square designed the way you want. for frr it will be made or you make it and then this Lady Maria she sews them on there. And for you quilt lovers out there let me say to be honored to have 2 of the 5 in the world here in Auburn to see, is awesome. They are so so big and very heavy. One quilt would cover up 10+ people. A well worth drive out to see them!! And we are saying that it's 2 of th 5 in world not just the USA the whole world. What a blessing it will be for you to see. Also we are having the event at our community;s newest park Rieke Park, It has so much to offer, from food to live music, free blood testing, walking trail, playground, restrooms and Karaoke singing!!! So much more. A great day all around!!!!!!!! Please come out to see us. Feel free to call me anytime with questions 260-927-8180 Christie.
