Moderator Lynn K is the bedrock of this highly helpful Hep Forum.  She tirelessly devotes a tremendous amount of her time doing UNPAID volunteer work helping us who are afflicted with Hep C.   Her knowledge about the various facets of Hep C is like an encyclopedia.  Her replies to many posts are always informative and very compassionate.

Thanks in large part to Lynn-K, this forum is the best place to learn about the 'real world' experiences with Harvoni and other 'cures' (as opposed to rosy medical marketing hype). 

Lynn-K, you are the great unsung Hero of Hep C victims. 

God Bless you for your awesome service to all cursed with Hep C. 

Sincerely, Preston

@ Lynn K

On the contrary, my dear, the 'thanks' is entirely owed to you.

You earned the appreciation of your members through unselfish devotion to helping others afflicted with the curse of Hep C.

BTW, you are coolest aviator cat that I ever met.

May God Bless you always,
Preston

Aww shucks guys :)

Lots of folks here do their best to help.

What I know I learned from those who came before and helped me just paying it forward.

I stand on the shoulders of giants.
