Our Superman

My husband contracted hepatitis after a blood transfusion he received when he was eight. This was back in the days when they didn't screen blood as carefully as they do now. His liver was showing signs of wearing out. He was presented with the opportunity to take Interferon treatments by his Liver Specialist. The treatment is a weekly shot for a year that makes you extremely physically, mentally and spiritually ill. He knew the treatment would be tough and he knew there was only about a 60% chance of success. He elected to go ahead with the treatment for the sake of our children and me. He braved a year of terrible sickness with a good and positive attitude even though he was in unbearable pain. The treatment worked and he has been cured! He is proof that faith and fearless perseverance pays off! He is our Superman!
