“My son was born with Hepatitis C.  He is 9 yrs old. It is so frustrating trying to find useful information out there. I understand checking his viral load is important, but is there nothing we can do to strengthen his health?  When can we start treatment?  When should we start treatment? Where is the information on treating children afflicted with Hep C?”
UsagiYojimbo9’s “Born with Hepatitis C - 9 yrs old now”

“I was recently diagnosed with hepatitis B. My doctor said that I was most likely infected at birth or in my childhood. I am so confused. No one in my family has hep B or liver cancer. I'm not American, but I was vaccinated before i came here in 1998. I'm 21 years old and I feel like I've been sentenced to death and I can't talk to any one in family because they are so judgmental.”
