Liver Life Walk San Diego 2014

Why Not Zoidberg

Hepatitis C has always been a personal nemesis of mine. It may sound a little odd of a word choice, but i can't think of a more perfect word for something that actively seeks to destroy your life.

I've had the virus since i was born, a vertical transfer, it's the least common way to get it. My mother, on her third round of the treatment,  was able to successfully zero out. As for myself, I've not been so lucky. The first two treatments didn't make a dent in my viral load and made me, physically, worse off. The latest round of the triple cocktail was able to take out a lot of the virus, but was unable to zero out.

So as i wait for the next round of treatment, i find myself in an ever worsening position. But i am lucky, lucky in that I've been able to receive these treatments, lucky in that i've had the friends and support network to assist me with the challenges that have come.

Please help, walk with me, and/or donate so that others who are not so lucky, may have the opportunity luck has denied me.

Sponsor me, and/or join my team, and thank you
