It is with great sadness that we share the passing of former HepatitisC.net advocate Barry Edge. Barry passed away on January 24th 2019, surrounded by his loving family. We are thinking of his loved ones during this difficult time. Barry will be remembered, and missed, by all who knew him.
A dedicated advocate
One of HepatitisC.net’s earliest advocates, Barry committed his life to serving others, through roles as an intake counselor for a substance abuse program, former Vice President of the Hepatitis C Association, and passionate advocate for the greater hepatitis C community. Throughout his battle with hepatitis C, and especially following his liver transplant in 2014, Barry was committed to sharing his experience with others, and offering his knowledge and support to fellow patients.
We are honored to have known Barry. His kindness, passion, and supportive attitude will be remembered by the entire hepatitis C community, as well as the advocates and team members of HepatitisC.net.
