EHE International Supports the American Liver Foundation's Efforts at Raising Awareness for Hepatitis

Naomi Judd Provides an Exclusive Interview with ALF Regarding Her Battle

with Hepatitis C

NEW YORK, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Liver Foundation (ALF), the nation's only not-for-profit dedicated to advocating on behalf of Americans with liver disease, is proud announce that it has united with EHE International (EHE), to raise the public's awareness of liver disease, including hepatitis C. To help spread the word about ALF's work, EHE has donated its 115 square foot display window at 10 Rockefeller Plaza to ALF for the month of January.

Hepatitis C is the most common blood borne virus in the United States affecting more than 4 million Americans. Country singer Naomi Judd is one American who has been touched by hepatitis C, who has become an outspoken advocate for people living with the virus.

"I say that I will never be free of hepatitis C as long as somebody else out there is suffering. I still make visits to hospitals and to folks who are, God bless them, on the transplant list," said Ms. Judd. "I survived this disease and this is how I did it. I took my drugs. I listened to my doctors and I did the things that the ALF tells us to do."

"Most people exhibit few or no symptoms of hepatitis C, and when symptoms do appear, it is only after the disease has progressed. EHE believes that it is critical for the healthcare industry to get behind education campaigns geared toward the prevention and treatment of hepatitis C," said Deborah McKeever, president of EHE. "Although there are preventative vaccines for hepatitis A and B, none exists for hepatitis C, therefore prevention is key." We hope that everyone who passes through Rockefeller Center this month will learn from the display and will visit their primary care physician for a check of their liver."

The display features signs filled with important liver health facts and a mannequin showing the placement and size of the liver. In the center
