That, and you might consider placing some PSA's here and there.... I'm posting the updated graphic in .JPG format)

Nods to Tina for suggesting this :+1:

Example PSA (misspelled "world' but that's alright. The PSA is still up, and there it will stay!)

Sorry for being late with this post.


I could also imagine some letter sent to G.., Abbvie, Merck, etc, with a text like:

"Dear Big Company, full of money and with potential to cure the entire planet,
We know that somewhere, together with other companies lije you and some countries, you set a nice goal to eradicate Hep C till 2030. It is so nice of you, it shows how much you care about people.
We are a small, crazy, energetic, bunch of people who think we can achieve the same thing like you, but much much faster, till end of 2018! What say you? Would you be willing to join our efforts and end this disease even sooner?

Yours sincerely,
FixHepC-Turbo initiative"

#love and piece!!!!

Great stuff Rochv! And see the news story is from Newswire- it says a Berkshire Hathaway company in the header. This is Warren Buffet's company- a letter like yours: Dear nearly richest single person in the world, you can only eat so many dinners, drive so many cars- how about buying back the patent and gifting it to the people of the world? or to MSF? what a popular hero you would be, still all the cars and dinners you will ever want!
Genotype 3 30 years, 2x treatment interferon/ribavirin non responder. Cirrhosis 17 years. Fibroscan, decompensating, 40 down to 22 by 29/3/16- now down to 6.5, normal, no cirrhosis. Started Buyers Club Sof/Dac 14 Nov 15. SVR 12 29/0716

Dr. Freeman posted the following a few days ago under the heading "The power of one".....

If just one of us can move the needle with a few carefully placed (free, that's important!) PSA's, just imagine what is possible for all of us working together.

You guys are the best....especially Mike :kiss:

Gotta push SMALL pharma (generics) that are available to people. Push the mindset of purchasing the drugs instead of begging.

This is something so powerful. My insurance wanted me to be almost dead (F4) to get treatment. Gilead wanted me to pay $23,000 USD with $70,000 in grants. When I learned that for $1500 I could buy treatment, I was not upset at all. I paid $1500 to get my dignity back. To be able to choose my destiny.

That's why I preached so much yesterday on this, big pharma is not concerned with anything but profits. You'll never change them.

So true, you can't shame something without a conscience or a soul.

Both true, but if you can create enough bad publicity that they see a potential reduction to those profits then just watch how quickly those corporate types change their tune! That is where AHF and ACTUP are coming from in their own way.


And we can also reduce their profits by helping spread the word on generics. :)
