Hepatitis C is an extremely dangerous disease that attacks the liver. It is easily transferable by blood, and it causes 400,000 deaths a year. Baywatch
actress Pamela Anderson announced in 2002 that she was contracted Hepatitis C from then husband Tommy Lee when they shared an infected tattoo needle. She started to write an advice column in Jane Magazine
about her struggles. In 2003, she told Howard Stern she didn't expect to live another 10 years.
