    Thank you, Merck for paying attention to us Hepatitis C sufferers. And thank you for giving a message to Gilead by making your tx 1/2 the price of existing companies. Your company has manufactured medicines for Hep C for 25 years. I have a feeling that you are motivated not simply for money. If so. we appreciate it.
