It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Erica Nirenberg. Many of you will remember Erica for her kindness and diligence in arranging the room for monthly support group meetings. “She knitted and crocheted for many charitable organizations and kept Dr. Heathcote’s feet warm for many years with handmade slippers!. A truly sweet, generous woman.”
Starting in Halifax in May, 2017, the Canadian PBC Society met with government health policy experts, decision-makers, medical professionals, and PBC patients and their families to talk about the ongoing work to find a cure for PBC, the critical need for early diagnosis of PBC patients, treatment options and the implications of disease progression for patients and their families.
