In 1981, Wendy F. received a blood transfusion during hip surgery and contracted hepatitis C. She was diagnosed in 1991. Wendy underwent two attempts to rid her body of the virus which included interferon and then interferon plus ribavirin which failed. Wendy continued therapy and a 3rd attempt with sovaldi and ribavirin was successful. Unfortunately, with 35 years of hep C, her liver was cirrhotic. She now needs a live donor for a transplant. Wendy’s liver specialist encourages a live donation. If you can help, contact Peter at email@example.com.
