    Hi,

    I hope all is well with you. I represent Healthline, a medical website providing trustworthy health news and advice. This year, one of our goals is raising awareness about Hepatitis C.

    We recently created a virtual guide of the symptoms of Hep C and how it affects the body. You can see the diagram here: http://www.healthline.com/health/hepatitis-c/effects-on-the-body

    I am writing to ask if you would help us raise awareness about the disease by including our tool as a resource on your page: http://hepatitiscnewdrugs.blogspot.com/

    Please let me know if this would be possible and if you have any questions.

    Thanks again and best wishes in 2014.

    Warm regards,
