Mary Leone

My name is Mary Leone. I am a wife, mom, jewelry designer, lover of books, baking, health, fitness, laughter, music and dance. Exploring the world by traveling near and far and experiencing culture through food, art, language and music are some of the things I am passionate about! My wonderfully large, supportive, loving family and friends bring huge delight to my life!

Thirty-four years ago, I had a blood transfusion during treatment for Leukemia. It saved my life but also gave me Hepatitis C. After years of trying many different forms of treatment, each with unsuccessful results, my dream of being Hep C free has come true! The arrival of new “miracle” medicine has brought me my long awaited cure! I am elated and joyful!

Living with Hep C and the deep layers of fears, uncertainties and loneliness that came with it, I experienced so many misconceptions about the disease. This has made me acutely aware and passionate for the need to educate, to share awareness and understanding within our communities and beyond.

I look forward to the day when Hepatitis C will be eradicated and we will have a chance to live a life with the hope of a future filled with many healthy years.
