  One of my favorite movies is the 1936 movie The Story Of Louis Pasteur. I would like to see a movie or read a story about the events which led up to a cure for Hepatitis C and who were involved. I think it is a very important event in history. I am sorry if I posted this in the wrong location. Would like to add Tuesday I have my last blood test 13 weeks after treatment hoping for the best, should get the results by Friday.

Hi Camper. I thought you might enjoy this on the scientist who had the breakthrough in our treatment.  They told him it couldn't be done, and he did it.  I love Michael Sofia!
