Our Story

Kimberly Bossley from Colorado, United States) and Patricia Maciel originally from Parana, Brazil and now US Citizens living in Chesapeake, Virginia) wanted to start something that is very important in their lives, something that can change not only their life but thousands of others suffering from hepatitis C. Both Kimberly and Patricia have been dealing with the Hepatitis C in their lives. Bonnie, Kimberly’s mom was a 1965 Kidney transplant patient who was also 1st woman in US/5th in the world to give birth after her transplant.

It was during this birth of her daughter Kimberly that both got a blood transfusion and found out years later it was tainted with Hepatitis c. Kimberly continues to fight against the HCV virus and she is participating in a trial treatment now that hopefully cures this disease. Patricia Maciel’s husband, Ray Maciel, has also been fighting with Hepatitis C. Ray believes he probably got it from a blood transfusion when he was a teenager. On July 6 2013 Ray received a liver transplant from a generous donor family who lost a loved one. Today Ray is still fighting for his life because the Hep C virus is still in his blood and will need to undergo treatment to cure Hep C. Both families are going through a huge battle against this virus.

Hepatitis C is a very emotional and stressful disease. The disease creates huge burdens to their families with all the ups and downs regarding their social, emotional and physical health. The largest burden is economic because eventually the disease becomes too great for the patient to be able to work and function normally. Add to this the cost of the doctors’ visits and the outrageous cost for medical treatment. Both families got together and wanted to do something to help everyone have the chance at getting a cure.
