Laurie,
I want to thank you for this. My sister is afflicted with this, and little is known or understood about it. Although it is "the most prevalent liver disease in the world," most people are ignorant about it. As I stated in my email forwarding your article . . . "SOME THINGS ARE JUST NOT FUNNY."
Bless you. Stay strong.

Noted and Thank you Laurie! When a person is faced with a serious medical challenge, this ignorant video is not only misleading, but in poor taste and is just so wrong. Sometimes a sense of humor can help a person through rough times in life, but everyone has different perspectives on what is humorous to them.May we have compassion and tolerance in this life. Bless you all.

I know and know of, people who have hepatitis C. Yes, a sense of humor is one of THE greatest blessings in life, but the problem is not much is known about the disease, and to trivialise it is dangerous. Noted and signed. Hugs to you, Laurie.

Petition signed. Thanks Laurie, and Carole for forwarding this to my attention! Spreading of improper medical information should be stopped as soon as possible. HCV can easily be transmitted by blood exchange. In the earlier days many people were infected with HCV due to blood transfusion.

I can not stand this kind of 'blame & humiliate the victims' mentality about anything where somebody is suffering especially! Hep C, is transmitted various ways & innocent people that got vaccinations at a clinic where needles were being misused/re-used also got Hep C! There are even those who will ridicule & blame a person for their own death when they have been murdered, so cruelty is way out of hand! They should not laugh at these people with Hep C because anybody could be next, even them! Noted with disgust & action taken! Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

I think I remember that the singers/actress family "The Judes" live with this disease everyday and bless each day their mother remains healthy and happy and ALIVE. To diminish people with jokes is so stupid.

HCV was not known before 1980's. According to CDC, the estimated number of new infections per year has declined from an average of 240,000 in the 1980s to about 19,000 in 2006.

Risk of HCV Infection according to CDC Fact Sheet:

Injecting drug users High
Recipients of clotting factors made before 1987 High

Hemodialysis patients Intermediate
Recipients of blood and/or solid organs before 1992 Intermediate
People with undiagnosed liver problems Intermediate
Infants born to infected mothers Intermediate

Healthcare/public safety workers Low
People having sex with multiple partners Low
People having sex with an infected steady partner Low

Noted. I received a liver transplant in March 2005 due to hep c. The surgery almost killed me not to mention what I went through pre-transplant. To laugh or make fun of others pain is unexcusable. I suffered with this disease for years as have many others. To think that this is "amusing" is sick.

Dear Laurie. I noted and signed the petition. My husband recieved a liver transplant 2 years ago. The operation was 16 hrs long and he spent 3 weeks in intensive care in a drug induced coma. This diease is deadly and Nothing to poke fun at. These idiots can't even get the facts on Hepatitis right. Many doctors, nurses and fire and rescue workers get this risking their lives to try and save others.I guess these people would poke fun at cancer until them or a loved one gets it! These videos are stupid! Get the facts right before you say something about something you know nothing about.

I contracted hep-c 23 years ago, 11 years ago I stopped drinking and I do not take pills. Tylenol is the worst pill to pass through the liver.....to even hear of such ppl being ignorant to any disease sickens me!!! I do not have treatment and those of us that have said dis-ease know the pain that comes with it. The great spirit has a place for everyone of us, those without compassion are accually living in 'hell'. Today I choose to not have such undesirables add to my pain. I am a completely positive person, it's too bad some are not;) BTW: ever noticed that Dis-ease and Disease have the same letters in spelling? Disease causes Disease
