There is no way we can properly thank you for being an essential player to have set this discussion form in motion. You have helped provide a way for all of us to open up and listen to the advice and experience of the gurus.  We are all proud of you and thankful that you gave so much to us that we can never repay.  I dont know what kind of mess I would be if I didnt stumble on this when I did. There are so many amazing people here Im happy to be here

This forum you have nurtured and cared for is alive with all who shared here, all who came here scared found an place to release the fears, struggles, receive hope and direction, Everyone here has been changed by Hep C and changed for the better by this forum.  We will miss you, and we wish you well in your next part of the journey. You cant miss, you cant fail, at whatever you do you have that gift.  It will be nice to hear you pop in and say hi Ill be looking. God bless you Steff

And Jill Thanks for taking the wheel

Steff thank you so much for your dedication and sincere support for all. Having this dreadful virus is a very stressful reality for us, but having people like yourself to be "REAL" with us and guide us in the direction that we need to be guided has been amazing to me. In fact we are all complete stranger, but I have received more genuine love here that I have from my own friends and family. I guess not walking a mile in my shoes makes them nervous. Having my forum family has been a huge blessing!

What I am saying is gracias Steff, I wish you many blessings in your new endeavors and my God bless your health. Jill is a great choice. Please check in on us occasionally! Your wisdom and inspiration will be greatly missed!


Romans 5:35

3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because Gods love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Steff,

Thanks for everything you've done for me and all the other people who have read this forum over the years. It takes a dedicated and caring person to keep this up for so as long as you have  This was my lifeline during tx. I never thought I would become so attached to people just by participating in a forum like this but I did. I feel like we are all a part of each others lives. We will always be connected and that is because of you. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and go forward in your life knowing that you have done a great service here.

You will not be forgotten by me.

Love, Jim

ps You have left us in great hands. Thanks to Jill for stepping up. :)

Hi Folks,

Id like to announce that Jill is now the new owner of this forum smile

Having been involved with this wonderful forum since it was first established, I now feel it's time for me to move on. It has been an emotional but very enlightening journey, from being diagnosed with Hep C to being lucky enough to achieve SVR in 2006. I've met some lovely people along the way and shared their ups and downs and that will always remain with me. I do have other health issues and have decided that shifting the focus to other aspects of life is a positive way forward now.

I know that Jill is a very dedicated, kind and supportive soul and that this forum will be in very safe hands, along with the rest of the Team.

I'd also like to thank all the members who continue to support each other through the often bewildering and scary times that this nasty virus brings. I hope that in the future, Hep C will be completely eradicated and that new and more tolerable treatments will become available to all.

Love Steff xx
