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.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 Found most of this information on the web.I have HCV and am searching for a cure.I was a healthcare worker.People with HCV shouldnt feel stigmatized.Public awareness is of the utmost imporance. SINCERELY, A HCV VICTIM. LUCINDA
