I don’t really think I had a fear about living with Hep C. Although my story is different from every one else, I willingly contracted Hep C from an organ donor. I knew what I was doing when I signed the paperwork to receive a high risk organ and at the time, I was running out of options, so my best case scenario was to receive a high risk organ or die. I chose to receive a Hep C donor’s heart and I’m abundantly grateful that I made the right decision for myself. I’m currently 3 years post heart transplant and I’m healthier than I’ve ever been in my life.
