Sixteen years after being diagnosed with Hepatitis C, Pamela Anderson revealed that she has been cured of the virus.
The Baywatch alum shared the news on Instagram, where she celebrated by sharing a naked picture of herself. The announcement comes on the heels of a new FDA-approved treatment she tried over the summer.
"I am CURED!!! - I just found out #nomorehepc #thankyou #blessing #family #prayer #live I pray anyone living with Hep C can qualify or afford treatment. It will be more available soon," she captioned the sexy pic. "I know treatment is hard to get still...#dontlosehope #itworkedforme #thereisacure #love #happy #americanliverfoundation #celebration #Idontknowwhattodo #iwanttohelp"
Doctors diagnosed Anderson in 2002. She claimed she contracted it after sharing a tattoo needle with now ex-husband Tommy Lee. Before trying this new treatment plan, Anderson had experimented with other alternative medicines. She previously told People magazine that her diagnosis originally felt like a "death sentence."
