In collaboration with Hep B Foundation’s #BtheVoice story bank, we are producing a series of short stories for people living with hepatitis B in Taiwan. Here is our inaugural #BtheVoice Taiwan story. As a novice in video editing, all comments are welcome.
This story is about a young woman with chronic hepatitis B who never got treated nor taken seriously until she was diagnosed with a 20-cm huge liver tumor at the age of 36. After surgical removal, the HCC recurred and spread to her lung within a few months. She is currently fighting for her life and begging the government insurance to cover the first line immunotherapy + targeted drug therapy to give her a better chance of survival and to raise her two young children.
