Hepatitis-C (HCV) is a virus that attacks the liver – it can be deadly and its effects (fatigue, nausea, weight loss, body aches) can be disabling. The disease can also behave like a silent killer, destroying a person’s liver over years without any symptoms. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently issued a warning and recommends that everyone between the ages of 45 and 65 be tested — potentially millions more could have the virus and not even know it. This story is about a cure for the disease — a cure patients can’t get access to.
