Hepatitis C clinic in Charlotte fights for survival

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, FL - A free Hepatitis C Clinic in Charlotte County is struggling to keep its doors open and asking the county for help. Clinic leaders say the number of cases are growing and they desperately need $50,000 to save lives.

Since 2008, Charlotte County's free Hepatitis C clinic at the Virginia B Anderson Volunteer Community Clinic has been treating patients.

Co- founders Dr. Mark Asperilla and Dr. David Klein started it after treating residents at their HIV clinic. They were surprised by what they found.
