You may want to consider Colloidal Silver for your hep c and zapping could be helpful as well.
As for your friend, if you could get a copy of Sherry Rogers book Wellness Against All Odds, you may be suprised at the info in there.
Sherry also had a friend with a couple weeks to live and together, with her vast knowledge, they mounted a comeback.
Her friend beat the cancer in that case. Sherry has helped many others beat cancer as well. A big part of the solution in those cases and many others has been a strict macrobiotic diet. I have several friends that are alive today because of macrobiotics. One is at the 12 year mark after his diagnosis with prostate cancer and at 60 years old now, way, way healthier than me.
There are many other stories of people mounting a comback from end stage cancers. I beleive the body knows how to heal itself, it just needs to be reminded how.
