“Hep C” is a contagious liver disease caused by the hepatitis C (HCV) virus. It is the most common bloodborne disease in the United States, most infections today originating from the sharing of needles or other drug injection materials. Hep C is often called the “silent disease,” in that the chronic stage might not reveal itself for many years after serious damage to the liver has already occurred.

There is currently no cure nor vaccine available for Hep C, which makes it even more critical to increase awareness and support for research funding. (It is 4 times more prevalent that HIV!).

A back-of-tie "Awareness Note" and a source citation are incorporated in the pattern design, which reads:

"HEPATITIS C virus (HCV) causes Hepatitis C, the most common bloodborne disease in the U.S. It can be dangerously silent for years before its damage to the liver is known. Hep C is four times more prevalent than HIV/AIDS and urgently requires greater awareness and research funding."
