As many of you know, my dad, Chris, was diagnosed with Hepatitis C eight years ago. He underwent unsuccessful Interferon and Ribavirin treatments in 2006 and 2010. In late 2009, we learned that he had developed liver cancer and he was placed on the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) list. Finally, in August 2011, we got the call and Chris received his liver transplant. The surgery was so successful that he was able to leave the hospital in just 5 days! After only four months he was back at work.
Even though Chris has a new liver, he is still infected with the Hepatitis C virus and it continues to attack his new liver. In March 2012, he decided to try another round of treatment that included a newly released drug combined with the first two known as the triple cocktail. Thus far, the treatment seems to be working. He has tested negative for Hepatitis C for seven straight tests and will be completing his treatment in May. The doctors believe that he may have finally beat Hepatitis C!!!
We are thankful to our family and friends who have continued to support us during this difficult time. We are also extremely appreciative of the wonderful family whose loved one donated their liver to Chris.
Unfortunately, Chris is not the only one who has suffered from liver disease. 30 million Americans are personally affected by liver disease. We are walking so that those suffering from liver disease can benefit from the critical funding for medical research, public education, patient support services, and advocacy that is accomplished by the money raised. Please support our cause by donating or joining us as we pound the pavement to change the face of liver health! Every single dollar counts, even $1.
