The National Help Line. This help line gives you and your loved one somewhere to turn for answers after diagnosis, helps you understand your disease, and provides you with the resources you need. You can call 1 (800) 563-5483 Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM EST.
The Peer Support Network. This program is a national network of people living with liver disease who have offered to share their experiences with others. It was developed by the Canadian Liver Foundation as a means to link Canadians who have been diagnosed with a liver disease, have a family member who has liver disease or care for someone who suffers from liver disease to talk about your concerns in a safe environment with a peer who has had a similar experience. If you would like to be connected with a peer supporter in your area, or would like to join the peer support network, please call 1 (800) 563-5483 or email Billie Potkonjak.
