Canadian Liver Foundation releases hepatitis documentary

Bang Albino Films, in collaboration with the Canadian Liver Foundation, has released a documentary film called "Deal with It: Untold Stories of Hepatitis C in Canada." The film's online release, timed to coincide with World Hepatitis Day on July 28, is intended to raise awareness of the disease, particularly among adults over the age of 50. It encourages viewers to discuss the condition and get tested for it. The documentary profiles a number of Canadians who are living with hepatitis C, as well as various liver experts. For a limited time, part of the on-demand sales from the film will be donated to the foundation.

"This documentary not only shows the real faces of hepatitis C but also drives home the point that it's a disease that no one thought about until they were diagnosed," said Gary Fagan, president of the Canadian Liver Foundation. "We hope the stories in 'Deal with It' can prevent many unnecessary deaths by encouraging people in at-risk groups to get tested."
