Organs yes, blood no. You can donate organs if you are not cured.

You cannot donate blood, but you can donate organs. Seems silly but that is the way it is done. Many people are offered HCV + livers if they have HCV already and there is no real issue with it.
Donate your organs! We should all be doing that and with the Holiday weekend coming up all of us who can should donate blood! DTD
