B-thalassemia-hep: First of all I am sorry about your daughter's condition. As you know, unfortunately there is nothing to cure beta thal major -besides an allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Now, with the hepatitis c- the situation will be way tougher for your daughter to deal with. She definitely needs to be seen by a hepatologist and see if she is able to get any therapy for hep c- if she can tolerate it.
