Speaker Mark Prater, Author of a book “The Silent Storm”, described his experiences in fighting off a killer blood disease, known as ‘hepatitis C’. Mark said that Naomi Judd, Actress & Humanitarian advocate wrote the “forward” for the book. He said the disease is non-communicable, but is transmitted through blood transfusions.
