Lucinda

Patient Leader

I am committed to raising awareness about hepatitis C. I believe that we can create a world free of hepatitis C. We do this together, one step at a time. I don’t like the “I” word. Saying “I did this” or “I did that” is dishonest. Everything I have done is the result of “we.” My books would not have been written without patients, publisher, and the support of my family and friends. All the hepatitis C advocacy work I have done is because of community support. So as you read this, please ignore “I” and remember “we.” Lucinda K. Porter, RN, is an advocate, nurse, health educator, and patient devoted to increasing awareness about hepatitis C. She is the author of Free from Hepatitis C: Your Complete Guide to Healing Hepatitis C, and Hepatitis C Treatment One Step at a Time: Inspiration and Practical Tips for Successful Treatment. Lucinda is a member of the Hepatitis C Support Project advisory board and writes for various publications, including the HCV Advocate. She was a clinical research nurse at Stanford University Medical Center’s Hepatology division. Lucinda has spoken at TEDxWomen as well as numerous conferences, workshops, webinars, radio shows and podcasts. She was named the top Social HealthMaker in hepatitis C by Sharecare. Lucinda’s books, blogs and articles offer practical tips, humor and encouragement, guiding patients to live well and free from the burden of hepatitis C. She is working on a book of daily inspirational readings for those with hepatitis C. Lucinda lives in Grass Valley, California with her husband, Ed Porter. www.LucindaPorterRN.com
