I was contacted by Deb Young, with the following message:
I have a 25 yr old son, Daniel who contracted Hepatitis C 9 months ago. The virus has now progressed to end stage as of my writing and we are still waiting months for his medicaid decision to begin chemotherapy. Daniel has received no treatment since diagnosis because he has no medical insurance and now has a prognosis of 1 year if treatment is not started in the next 4 weeks. The fact this could have been treated and his life saved but for lack of a doctor caring sickens me, his mother and his father.
Thank you again,
Deborah & John Young

Daniel keeps a blog, Fugtastick. Please leave a comment for encouragement and support.
