Today is the last day of Hepatitis Awareness Month, but viruses don’t observe calendars. The need for increased hepatitis C awareness will be just as great tomorrow as it was today. The work ends when the need for awareness ends, when there is no more hepatitis C. Small pox was eradicated, and if that disease can be wiped out, then so can hepatitis C.

It takes commitment, intention, and diligence; and perhaps money and a few other things, but nothing insurmountable. I’ve never been one to let details stop me from doing something worth doing. Besides, there has ever been a better time to stop hepatitis C in its tracks than this moment. Let’s keep the momentum going.
