Michael, Hepatitis C Survivor

Michael with grandson

“I had to thank the PAN Foundation for their help. Without it, I couldn’t receive treatment for hepatitis C. I am disabled from an accident, and I can barely afford to pay for doctor and blood test co-pays through Medicare. At 57 I was facing a death sentence, as I already have cirrhosis. Now, I have a chance to see my grandson grow up. You see, since my last blood test, hepatitis C has not been detected and I still have about 10 days of treatment left. Money should not be a factor in who can have access to treatment when you are facing a life-threatening disease! The PAN Foundation is saving lives and everyone there should be commended. I don’t know what to say, other than thank you from my heart.” —Michael G.
