DHE's Story

After a year of testing and waiting, DHE was diagnosed with chronic hepatitis B. He was shamed by his doctor into believing he was to blame and became too embarrassed to talk about his status. Fortunately, DHE's therapist introduced them to a local hepatitis advocacy group that provided resources and a safe and supportive space to talk about hepatitis. DHE hopes sharing his story can help stop the spread of hepatitis B in his community.
