I saw a commercial in Maine for the first time last night and it ran three times. I saw one in MASS about a year ago. It's about time they start educating about it. Maybe the new treatments has prompted them!
Yes I have seen the same commercial several times on NBC, glad too see it. I didn't even know I had to ask to be tested, I figured if there was nothing showing up in regular blood panels I must not have it. I know two people who are not doing anything about their hepc, but are trying to get insurance with the new programs. It is the dawning of a new day—maybe this will be wiped out in our lifetime.
I started seeing the Gilead commercials on the US west coast. Great commercials telling people to talk to their doctors about Hepatitis C and new treatment options. I was surprised to see it on prime time TV multiple times.
The present and future.... is looking good for those with Hepatitis C.
I was actually thrilled to see a commercial about Hep C. After having this d*rn disease more than 1/2 of my life, I am glad to see that some company has finally taken the initiative to get a commercial out 'there' about it.
