I don't know how all the spreading works- I do comments on this sort of thing all week long, get some hits, sometimes quite a few and occasionally people contact me through those. But this one, I had no sooner posted than it seems everyone on my fb friends are getting it as a notification, so it must just be because it has such a wide readership. Worth the doing. I mix it up depending on the story but have started saying: please tell everyone, we all know someone with hep c. I have also noticed that actual links get taken down often or don't make it in so i say look up fix hep c as one word, look under Redemption trial etc. or look me up.

Hi Hazel,

You are doing an excellent job, do not question/doubt your efforts. Perhaps it helps you to know that people who are reading your posts need to make their own judgement on what HCV is, what the generic DAAs are, whether they can trust what you say, whether they can be really cured, how to safely & legally get the drugs, do they have the money etc.
There are so many variables to take into account, therefore think that what you are doing is to offer them the OPPORTUNITY to know that a solution for getting treated exist. Once this piece of information reaches people, the rest is their own journey and it is up to them to make the CHOICE.

And also think that what you are doing is actually a kind of collaboration with other people who are also spreading the same news. Maybe individually we are not so strong, but as long as the number of people spreading the news increases, the more results there will be.

Stay positive and have trust in your actions!
Think that every saved life to which your posts contributed is a big victory !!!

Cheers
RHF
In fiecare an HCV ucide peste 500000 oameni.Medicamentele generice pentru hepatita C functioneaza. Nu deveni statistica! Cauta pe Google “medicamente generice pentru hepatita C”.
HCV kills more than 500000 people every year. HCV generic drugs work. Don't become a statistic.

Thanks Hazel, Tina and Matt!

Anyone with a moment should go and have a look, like the comments from team HTM, and (if you've got a Facebook account add something)

Doh! I do these kind of comments all the time...... but this time I ticked, share on facebook, thinking that meant comment visible on their facebook page. But no, of course I shared to my public timeline... doesn't matter, in fact good because lots of people have shared it now, including a friend in the US just an hour ago, now I have someone wanting info. So, that is good but can't push it 4 times a week or they will all get sick of it.
