In observance of Hepatitis Awareness Month, I am posting to this blog daily, highlighting websites and organizations that are doing remarkable work educating the public, raising awareness, and making a difference in the lives of those affected by viral hepatitis. I suggest you visit each site, and find out what they are doing, how you can stay informed, and possibly help with their efforts.
No one suffers more from viral hepatitis than the parents of kids who are infected. There aren’t a lot of children with chronic viral hepatitis, so parents have a hard time finding each other. They are isolated, and there is very little information available for them. There are limited treatment options, leaving parents feeling helpless and hopeless.
Enter in Parents of Kids with Infectious Diseases (PKIDS). It’s where I would start if I needed information about pediatric chronic viral hepatitis. From there, check out their other resources. It’s sad to think about kids with chronic hepatitis B or C, but thank goodness for PKIDS.
