The California Hepatitis C Task Force

On behalf of our Board of Directors, I am saddened to report we are all struck by the devastating loss of Megan's passing away peacefully, much too soon, on Friday, December 14, 2018. She was surrounded with love from family and friends after suffering from illnesses that broke her body but not her spirit. This loss of one of our own team members and long time friends has been felt by those in the communities we serve locally and around the world. Her unselfish sacrifice to pioneer and help save the lives of so many people in their struggles and challenges with substance abuse issues and mental disabilities is a legacy of greatness that remains with us. She humbly fought fearlessly for the underserved up to to her final days. Our deepest condolences go out to her family during this time. Rest in Peace - May 3, 1962 to December 14, 2018.

Upcoming celebration of Megan's life event will be posted, once determined, via our social media.
Bill Remak, Chairman

A recent surge in opioid addiction and injection drug use among young people across the state and the country. California's Department of Public Health is now reporting that hepatitis C virus (viral hepatitis) infections are now skyrocketing among millennials across the state-with new infections increasing 55 percent among men ages 20 to 29 and 37 percent among women in the same age group in the Golden State over the last decade, Capitol Weekly reports. Viral hepatitis-related death toll now exceeds all other nationally notifiable infectious conditions combined.

Together we can change the worldwide landscape and save lives by organizing patients and their loved ones to advocate for better access to healthcare and cures for viral hepatitis. Your contribution will help us reach our goal of getting everyone in California living with viral hepatitis cured.
