Canada: Hepatitis C: breakthrough drug coverage a lifesaver for B.C. man

Kaslo resident Desmond McKilligan contracted hepatitis C more than 40 years ago from a tainted blood transfusion, and just got a call saying he qualifies for Sovaldi.

"My liver doesn't have anywhere to go but cirrhosis," he told CBC News. "It was a great thing to be called about that."

McKilligan says it's a new lease on life, and is thrilled he may actually see his grandchildren in Montreal.
