A footnote–or soapbox moment–from this blog post’s writer: Hepatitis C is curable. If you are interested in treatment, please talk to your healthcare provider–and possibly your local government representative–about available treatment options. While researching for this blog post, I came across more websites than I think there should be describing the hep C virus well, but missing the fact that there are now hep C treatments. There are now treatments for hepatitis C with high success rates. Hep C is now curable and there is a growing number of writers who can attest to it!

The number of treatment stories has been growing during the past 5 years as thousands of people have participated in clinical trials for hepatitis C Direct Acting Antivirals (DAAs). As data from these clinical trials continues to emerge, so do the personal treatment stories and experiences of people who have been treated with these new drugs.

PHCN is asking people who have been through these new treatments and who want to share their treatment stories and experiences to do so here.

You have forged the path and now we’re asking anyone who is interested to come back and tell others what the landmarks are – emotions, side effects, support, diet – whatever it was for you. Whatever your treatment stories with new hep C drugs are, if you would like to share it, we would love to hear it and share it on this website.

We can help with spelling and grammar after you submit your piece so, even if they are not your strengths, WRITE US YOUR STORY!!
