Roy Van Horne

Memorial Awards

In Memoriam

Roy van Horne became infected with Hepatitis C while serving in the Vietnam War and was successfully

treated in 2006. Realizing how many others were infected with this disease, particularly fellow service

men and women, Roy decided to devote his time to bringing awareness of hepatitis C, education, and

support to the veterans and the community at large. Roy was the founder of the HepCats Support Group

and a tireless advocate. Sadly, Roy passed away in October 2010. His death was a huge loss to the HCV

advocacy and support community. His kind of passion and energy are rare and beautiful and his loss has

left a deep wound, however, he would not want us to languish or become lost in our grief.

Roy’s desire was to bring hope and care to those in need and in that spirit we will introduce at

this year’s symposium the Roy Van Horne Memorial Award. The Roy Van Horne Memorial Award is

presented to an individual who has exhibited outstanding leadership and advocacy in viral hepatitis in

Minnesota. The award reflects the dedication to advocacy and support Roy exhibited for those with

hepatitis.
