Liver Awareness Month: stories of lived experience

November 10, 2021

October was Liver Awareness Month, and our campaign reached over 19,000 people across social media, web, HEPChat, video and podcast platforms. It recognised the importance of liver health and the causes of liver disease, with a range of stories, podcasts and articles about liver disease – hepatitis B and C, liver cancer, fatty liver, and autoimmune liver disease.

We thank David, Jen, Swati, Mandy and Chloe for generously sharing their personal stories. We have been moved by how they have dealt with diagnosis, the changes and challenges they have faced, their spirit of survival, and what they have learned along the way.

Our thanks also to RMIT journalism students Sean Mortell, Indiana Hansen, Tyler Wright and Umang Davendra, who contributed articles to this campaign.

We are here to answer your queries and support you. Call or chat with us online.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands where we work - the lands of the Woi-Wurrung Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We express our gratitude to them for their continued care and curation of these lands and waters. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

LiverWELL observes and honours the Kulin Nation's intrinsic connection to land, sky and water, and the creator Bunjil. LiverWELL is committed to being led and informed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders on bridging health outcomes for communities and improving liver health.
