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.

      I have all 4 of the 4 Hepatitis C Quilts that there is in the whole world on display at this years HepFest on June 22, from 11 til 4 pm, Auburn, Indiana Rieke Park...
         Hello everyone! I hope this finds you all enjoying this beautiful morning! I am so excited for alot of reason's. 1 God allowed me to wake up yet one more morning. 2 my oldest daughter is about to Graduate High School!!! 3 A couple of good friends are coming to see me the first time in 14 years. 4 Indiana's 7th Annual HepFest Festival is two weeks later on June 22, 2014 from 11am til 4pm here in Auburn, Indiana. So I am really excited. It is getting real now. I have been settled down off the truck for 15 years and I have my little trucker baby ready to take the next step in her life. She has been in school for 15 years total. She did 2 years of Pre-School before her long journey of school. And now in the Fall she is going to College to become a Lawyer. I am a very proud mother!!! 
     Well now I get ready to put a graduation party, a awesome visit for my friends from Kentucky and a Festival!!!  So needless to say I really have my hands full!!! I enjoy it though it helps me to not think about my physical needs and allows me to go to another place in my day and stronger then the day before. Please know that I think I do best under pressure sometimes. So I am so sure I can do it.. I am a fighter not a quiter. So on we go. 
     Just like all of you should do who are on this page by way of Hepatitis C. All of you should remain fighters in your life's. Nothing no matter what it is is worth being depressed and let that rob you from today. No one knows what tomorrow's will bring. But we do know what today brings right this very minute. You are all AWESOME and LOVED by me and my family not matter if I know you or not. If you are reading this and you are not local. Then please reach out to a local Hepatitis C Support Group... Now if there isn't one then please start one. That is what I did. With no clerical experience at all. I will celebrate my 10th year for my group this October. I knew that i needed support for me and that there were no groups around so I started my own. And now we have grown like crazy. I have opened the eyes of so many in my community and erased some of the Stigma. So no matter your education, background and what you know and who you know. Just got to your local hospital and make a go of it. There is so many out there that need you!!! I pray you all will stay strong and for those of you who can I hope to see you at this years HepFest Festival, another thing I started just 7 years ago. A festival for those suffering with Hepatitis C , their family and friends. And a great way to educate your community!!! Hopefully you all will be better tomorrow then you are today. I pray that you all stay strong and know that I care about all of you!!! Please feel free to call me with any concerns and or question's. 260-927-8180 
     You all have a wonderful day and remember to smile at everyone you see in hopes they will pass it on!!!!
