Increase Herpes Research Funding

Messages Sent So Far
Please increase research funding to promote a cure and better treaments for HSV 1 and 2.

Herpes is a national, and worldwide epidemic. It increases one's chances of acquiring HIV, it causes blindness, it has been linked to Alzheimer's and certainly causes depression, anxiety and untold suffering amongst the afflicted and their loved ones. Additionally, herpes makes individuals who have AIDS more infectious.

The CDC estimates that 48 million people in the United States alone suffers from genital herpes. It is estimated that there are 500,000 new cases each year in the United States alone. Various estimates indicate the direct costs of treating genital herpes alone to be over 1 billion dollars per annum. This does not take into account productivity losses and the costs to treat resulting depression, etc. Additionally, this also does not reflect the economic burden associated with HSV-1 or oral/facial herpes which affects as many as 50% of the United States population and as many as 90% of the US population 50 years of age and older.

As a signer of this petition, taxpayer and proud citizen of the United States I respectfully ask that you do everything within your powers to increase research funding for this terrible disease!

It would better our lives and our potential to find true happiness with someone if we knew there was no fear of breaking out and transmitting to someone else.

Dear who truly cares, It really sucks to live with this terrible skin infection: Herpes and it really sucks knowing that there is not a cure for Herpes yet. It really sucks. And if someone out there really cares about our health, please increase the research funding for this dangerous disease and make a cure happen! If I'm rich, I would find a cure for myself but sadly, I'm not rich and I do not have any powers to make a cure happen but you can! So, please help us by increase the research fund and make the cure happen within one-three years instead of "no cures" for the next 20 years.

As a sufferer of HSV-1, I must attest that it is an awful condition. The superficial, physical symptoms are one thing but the effects of this virus go much deeper. I've never felt so exhausted in my entire life. And I don't know if it will get better. Before I contracted this virus, I recall the friends that I know who have herpes. They're all chronically fatigued, they're susceptible to strange infections, they have this odd brain fog. Now, here I am with the same virus and I'm experiencing the same issues. I just thought those friends had some genetic/constitutional deficit.... No, herpes is like going through life carrying a sandbag. I recall a man in one of the classes I take. Everyone is looking vibrant but this man has a cold sore and his face is remarkably ashen and gray; a serious sign of one's kidneys being drained. If you goto the dialysis unit in a hospital, you will see what I'm talking about. Herpes is pulling us all down. And maybe that's a good thing with overpopulation and whatnot. But for those of us who are wanting to serve in this world, it is a burden that shouldn't be. Please raise the funding for herpes research.
