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.

Life Beyond Hepatitis C was founded by Connie Welch in 2011. The mission statement for this lovely site is:

  • Life Beyond Hep C is where faith, medical resources and patient support meet, helping Hep C patients and their families navigate through the entire journey of Hep C.
  • Life Beyond Hep C is dedicated to encourage others through Jesus Christ to live beyond our circumstances. Who we are is not defined by disease, stigma, trauma or tragedy.
  • It is our mission to serve the whole person, spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically while helping them through the journey of diagnosis, tests, preparing for treatment, treatment and recovery.

Connie calls upon her faith in order to lend strength and hope to those affected by hep C. Her words soothe me and help me stay on course. Connie is a regular blogger at HEP and you can read her HEP story here.
