A few days ago I posted a short email from a lady in Texas whose brother could not access any form of Hep C treatment there. She was watching her brother lying in bed slowly dying from an easily cured disease. Now here is another email from Texas, from a man watching his mother dying… Truly how greedy, how cruel, is Gilead… to have the cure for Hepatitis C and not make it available to those people who need it?
My name is John and I am from a small town in Texas.
My mother found out about 4 yrs ago that she has Hepatitis C. Over the last four years she has been going to Doctor after Doctor and really we haven’t seen a difference.
She was told about a month ago she may possibly have cirrhosis of the liver. I love my mom and I can’t lose her yet. How could i get this medication? Or does she need to go to India. I’ve been taking her to her appointments and honestly we don’t have $80,000 it costs for the treatments. What do i need to do to save her?
So whilst tens of thousands of American are dying because they can not access affordable Hepatitis C treatment Gilead actively tries to block and censor information about the effectiveness of generic Hepatitis C treatment.
Almost every day I get emails from folk telling me they have heard rumours that these generic Hep C medicines are fake or even poisonous… seriously!
Here are two examples I received this week:
I’m curious: do you know of any companies who test hep c medications to make sure they are real?
I’ve heard rumours there are fake drugs around.
sorry it took so long to get back with you. we are wanting to do sofosbuvir and daclatasvir. how much will it cost total? has anyone died from taking it? i heard some rumours is why i ask. we have my mothers labs and some money finally. look forward to hearing from you thanx,
