The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is transmitted by blood-to-blood contact. In developed countries, it is estimated that 90% of persons with chronic HCV infection were infected through transfusion of unscreened blood or blood products or via injecting drug use or by inhalational drug use. In developing countries, the primary sources of HCV infection are unsterilized injection equipment and infusion of inadequately screened blood and blood products.
I don't know how Ms. Cole contracted this disease unless it was during the time she was involved in drug use. I do know that she has undergone many treatments and unfortunately, her hair has prevented the treatments from working completely to her advantage and she has declared that she will have all her hair cut off so that she can get the full effects of the treatment. As you can see, she has lost a lot of weight. This is nothing to play with. You can't get a liver replacement. (organ donor) When your liver ceases to function - you are a goner. Let's offer our prayers to her and her family. IT's a lot to go through.
