Model and actress Pamela Anderson says she's been cured of hepatitis C after taking a new anti-viral medication.
She was diagnosed with the infection in 2002 and began a new FDA-approved drug regimen in the summer, People magazine reported.
"I am CURED!!! I just found out," Anderson, 48, wrote on Instagram Saturday. "I pray anyone living with Hep C can qualify or afford treatment. It will be more available soon. I know treatment is hard to get still...#dontlosehope."
She tried a number of alternative medicines before beginning treatment with the new anti-viral drug, People reported.
"I don't have any liver damage and I don't have any side effects," Anderson said. "I'm living my life the way I want to but it could have eventually have caused me some problems and so it was a real blessing that I was able to get the medicine."
