Federal Funding for Hepatitis C Reseach

Please help lend your voice and let us who are affected by this horrible
disease and write congress and tell them we need to educate others on this
disease they have put so much into AIDS research and to find a cure but we
have people that don't know or every heard of Hepatitis C.

Hepatitis C is compared to AIDS in alot of ways and people are misimformed.

So please we need to get funds to spread the word of this disease!

The Hepatitis C Virus infection persists in 85% of cases, and often has no
symptoms until liver damage has occured, many years after infection. It too
can cause cirrhosis, liver cancer and liver failure and it is responsible
for 8,000 - 10,000 deaths per year.

HCV is spread through blood to blood contact.

So please lend a hand and help me in this fight!

Hi Anna,,,,Noooo,,,Haven't heard anything and have been worried about her. She usually tries to let us know something when he has been in hospital before.  I just pray everything is alright for them and we hear something soon!

I've aready asked on a new topic thread last week, but got no answer.
has anybody got news from couchpotato ? her last dramatic post left me very worried and she often comes to my mind. I hope to hear some good update.  
in case it is a matter of respecting her privacy please ignore my question and I'll (eventually..!) understand. I'm slow, as some have already observed.  
all the best to you all.
