Hepatitis C is a very emotional and stressful disease. The disease creates huge burdens to their families with all the ups and downs regarding their social, emotional and physical health. The largest burden is economic because eventually the disease becomes too great for the patient to be able to work and function normally. Add to this the cost of the doctors’ visits and the outrageous cost for medical treatment.
We here at the Bonnie Morgan Foundation for HCV have years of personal experience on all levels of this disease. We are *Patients*Caregivers*Veterans*Children*Advocates* more importantly *WE* are here to support you from start to finish in your journey fighting this disease.
Our priority is to help those diagnosed with Hepatitis C gain their lives back after being diagnosed. Give them the knowledge and power to be informed and able to look this disease in the face and take charge of their lives again. The key to winning this battle is staying positive. Hep C has many side effects that create a dark shadow over our daily lives. Focusing on your mental positive outlook will not only help relieve stress on the liver but allow you to live your life fullest in the moment.
The new phase of this disease with all the amazing treatments becoming available is taking a once terminal diagnosis and putting the word CURED to it. It is a exciting time for all and also the most important time for each of us to start becoming a "Voice" to this disease, by spreading awareness and educating those about Hepatitis C.
