Hepatitis C is a potentially life-threatening disease that impacts more than 3 million people in the United States.

A pleasant grove man is one of them. Mark Ahearn, a former U.S. Marines Field Medic and Pleasant Grove father of 3, expects he contracted hep C when he was a first responder in the Marines.

But after living with the disease for decades, now he may be cured with a revolutionary new drug. Since Mark completed treatment with this new, game-changing drug on May 19, the virus is undetectable.

He along with Dr. Terry Box talk about the new treatment.
