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.
