After Pamela Anderson learned she was cured of potentially fatal liver disease Hepatitis C, she celebrated the exciting medical news as only she could: posting a nude photo to Instagram. The photo, which appears to be a throwback to a sunny trip to Cannes, France, proudly proclaims "I am CURED!!!" in the caption. The actress and prominent PETA activist told People in September that she has been fighting the disease, which she contracted in 2002 after sharing a tattoo needle with then-husband Tommy Lee, with a regimen of FDA-approved antiviral medication.
There isn't a vaccine for the disease just yet, but extremely expensive treatments like the one Pam was on have been yielding very positive results. She made sure to call out the unfortunately costly downside of getting Hep C treatment in her caption, saying, "I pray anyone living with Hep C can qualify or afford treatment. It will be more available soon. I know treatment is hard to get still...#dontlosehope #itworkedforme #thereisacure." Congratulations, Pam!
