I am so sorry to hear about Hector. I haven't been on here in quite awhile and just heard about him. Even if I had seen this sooner, I wouldn't have been able to afford the trip. I just don't have any extra funds for a plane ticket and I would need to fly, being in FL. Then, there would be hotel expenses and food, etc.,etc. But, my thoughts and prayers with his family and friends. He was such an inspiration and encouragement to so many! Susan400
Yes, I feel like there are many who don't often get on MedHelp and others who were cured and left for good - many of those people relied on Hector's wisdom and thoughtfulness through their Hep C journey
Susan, if you would like to send a card to Hector's family, I will personally give it to Donna, his sitter, at his memorial. I know it would mean a lot to her
Send me a PM and I will send you my address, which, luckily for me expense-wise, is just a mile or so away from my house and also where Hector (Howie) spent so much of his time, comforting and counseling liver transplant and liver cancer patients
Oh my god! I didn't know he passed. No wonder I haven't heard from him in a while. We spoke nearly every day. I didn't hear from him because I thought maybe he didn't want to be bothered because of the pain. I am very sadden to hear this news. I know he struggled with pain constantly after the transplant.
I wish I could attend, but I'm recovering from an ankle replacement and in a orthodontic boot for 5 more weeks.
Thanks for the update. Not sure whether I'll make it or not but I will send this on to at least one member I know of who medhelp ( sadly) threw off of here. Thanks again.
I would like to send a card please. Howie was my hero. I have sent PM's to people as well.
