Pamela Anderson Announces She's Cured of Hepatitis C with Nude Pic on Instagram

Happy news for the Baywatch icon

Malcolm Venable

Pamela Anderson, who's been living with Hepatitis C for 16 years, announced on Saturday that she's free of the disease in total Pam Anderson style: by posting a picture of herself nude on a yacht.

"I am CURED!!!," she wrote in the caption, along with a number of hashtags. " 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 #itworkedforme #thereisacure."

Earlier this summer, model and actress told People she'd started a new FDA-approved drug regimen after experimenting with various alternatives. Anderson was diagnosed with Hep C in 2002, which she once described as like a "death sentence," after sharing a tattoo needle with her then-husband Tommy Lee.

"I think it really worked on my self esteem," she said. "Even though I may have looked confident on the outside, I think it really was a dark cloud that lingered over me."
