emo Americans ... Idea!

Hey all of you Americans that have been helped by this site. I've got an idea to get the news of generics and this site into the American Mainstream Media ... and we get to help an American Veteran in the process!

How about a bunch of us pledge money to buy 24 weeks of generic Sof/Dac/Rib for Zion Israel ... on the condition that he contact his journalist from CBS and tell him what he's doing. He's the man in this video:

www.cbsnews.com/news/va-cant-afford-drug...ng-from-hepatitis-c/

I think I know how to find him. I'd be willing to make the offer if we get enough pledges.
I bet Emilio could collect the money and get the drugs shipped from Kingswood Pharmacy for us.
We'll need something in the range of $2300.

If we get enough pledges I can go $500.00

Who else is in? PM me if you don't want to go public with your pledge.
(Use the PM function in the header, not the pop-up .... I'm less likely to miss it that way.)

Hi Kevin,

I've made a few calls.

FixHepC will add $1 for any $1 pledged

Adam at Kingswood Compounding will add $1 for any $1 pledged

I will add $1 for any $1 pledged

I can't get hold of Graeme at West Lindfield Pharmacy but knowing him I'd be willing to bet he will contribute to so how about you make the call...


YMMV

I thank everyone for their support and encouragement for the Pharma/VA interview on CBS. As a result I have been approved for treatment but let's not forget the others who need treatment and are being denied. Blessings!

Okay ... I found him .... but it says on his facebook page that he has now been approved for treatment due to the CBS story publicity.

So I'll think about this and see if there's still a way to leverage this. He may still be able/willing to get us in touch with his journalist, or maybe he knows of another case that would make a good story for CBS.

Everybody keep their eyes open for an alternative way to do this.

(Damn ... I'd have found him sooner if I'd only read more carefully and seen the "Y" in front of his name.)

All the paid people searches seem to have been scrubbed. I can see he exists but can't get the contact info. I think I have an old phone number from a different state, but it's too late to be trying to call now. But here he is with his keyboard.



Wait ... email address! less than a year old!

Aha! The Facebook account is a celebrity style account ... messages get sent to a secondary folder never to be seen.
Friend requests will be ignored. It's meant only for "followers" and such.

I found the real one! Tricky guy, but not tricky enough ... message sent!

You can get him here www.facebook.com/groups/HCV.Treatment/ He posts on that FB group is where I caught up with him.

I bet he's here right now! He just accepted my friend request.

You here Zion?

Edit: Contact made! He's IN!
Hope to talk on the phone tomorrow and he'll send all our info to his journalist!

And yes Paul, he was already aware we existed.

Well, it's great that Zion Yisrael has got his treatment.

Of course, fixHepC is welcome to use my donation in any other way it chooses.

ATTENTION!
This is NOT from fixHepC!
FixHepC does not censor...

A kind reminder from the HepMag forum moderators

Hello,

We appreciate your willingness to help folks on the Hep Forums but encouraging people to take it off the Forums and into the Hep Forums personal messaging system is inappropriate.

Quote
I am aware of some people who want to help veterans who have HCV and been denied treatment by the V.A. Please PM if interested.

Future violations can result in a suspension of your membership.

Thank you for being a Hep Forums member and for abiding by our rules.

Best,
Hep Forum Moderators

AGAIN, the above us from HepMag, not fixHepC
