Pamela Anderson Celebrates Being Hepatitis C-Free With A Nude Selfie
Pamela Anderson isn't one to step away from centre stage, especially when she's got some good news, and she's shared her latest news in a very interesting way.
The Baywatch beauty took to Instagram to tell the world that Hep C is finally curable and that she is free from the disease she's suffered with for sixteen years, by sharing a blissful shot of herself reclining nude on a yacht...talk about revealing it all!
The star was beaming with relief and gratitude, saying "I am CURED!!!...I pray anyone living with Hep C can qualify or afford treatment."
Her post was jam packed with a stream of hashtags, from #dontlosehope, #itworkedforme and #iwanttohelp, to show her support for such treatment to be made more readily available to other sufferers.
The disease is known to lead to liver cancer and whilst there is no vaccine there are effective treatment regimes being established. Unfortunately for many, the treatment takes its toll on the pockets, but their is hope that this will soon change because help should be provided to all.
In an interview with People Magazine, Anderson expressed her support im "trying to remove stigma from hepatitis C", saying she's "always been an advocate" for such a cause. She's no newbie to such active participation in vital public issues, having been a part of campaigns against domestic violence and establishing The Pamela Anderson Fund - which aims to stand on the front lines in the protection of all human, environmental and animal rights.
Anderson contracted the disease when sharing a tattoo needle with her ex, Tommy Lee, sixteen years ago, but thankfully never developed liver cancer. Despite this, she had always seen it as a 'dark cloud' lingering over her like 'a death sentence'.
Now, that dark cloud is lifted and Pam is free to live a life free of fear, doing all she can to help others who are in the same position she has lived through.
We'll frolic across the beach with you, Pam, and celebrate the news!
