It's "NOT" an "STD"!!
It has been a problem in the begining about Hepatitis being stigmatized let alone by bad information being lead by the wrong people with no true facts to go on.
FlowGo has taken off on their site the "Living with Hepatitis" and here it was some of it says: Living with hepatitis -- I'm turning green and it hurts to pee! Tryin' to keep things quiet -- don't want to scare all the girls that slept with me!

Well this time they have climbed the wrong tree!
Please sign my petition to get them to take this off any site thereof they may have this on.
Funding is needed for research on the HCV VIRUS to find medications with less severe side effects and a cure or vaccine.
Millions of Americans have HCV and many more do not know they are infected with HCV. For every "1" with AIDS there are "5" with Hepatitis C and growing.
HCV affects the liver and can lead to chirrosis and liver cancer or death.
HCV is a leading cause of liver transplants.
This is a bloodborne disease.Blood transfusion recipients that received blood years ago may have HCV.
Veterans may have caught HCV when given shots being administered by the air guns.Healthcare workers are at high risk for being infected with HCV.
Firemen ,policemen,and EMTS also are at risk.
People that were given tattoos or body piercings with unclean needles are at risk.
IV drug abusers are at risk.People that have shared razors or toothbrushes are at risk.
More people died from Hepatitis C last year than from AIDS in the U.S. This is a Global disease.
It destroys lives. I have HCV and am searching for a cure.
People with HCV shouldn't feel stigmatized. Public awareness is of the utmost imporance.
But without funding it is impossible for them to continue their operations and for others to become an open door for Hepatitis C and their families for Support.
We need to educate others about this disease that kills 18,000 - 20,000 a year, mostly due to poor self keeping or not even knowing they have this horrific disease!
