Wendy's Story

Growing up in Canada, Wendy lived a typical upbringing, considered herself to be athletic, and was involved in many sports. When Wendy was in college, she found out she had hepatitis B and learned she got it from her mother at birth. Years later, when her mom was diagnosed with liver cancer, it was a wake-up call for Wendy – she realized the importance of educating herself about hepatitis B and committed to living a healthier lifestyle, getting regular checkups, and having her doctor actively monitor her hepatitis B.
