Spain: Hepatitis C patient feels like a new man

ISIDORO ESCAMILLA was tired of feeling like he always had the flu, an effect of suffering from Hepatitis C that was diagnosed in 2007.

A drug called Sovaldi was hailed as something that would completely change things for him and has been prescribed in Spain for 18 months. Unfortunately, until January 2015 it was not available to patients in Andalucia, where Escamilla lives.

He fought to get the drug to Andalucia, and even tweeted Susana Diaz, president of the Junta de Andalucia regional government.
