Best friend is infected with viral hepatitis C will she die soon?

Likely not soon. Although hepatitis c can result in cirrhosis and liver cancer, the process takes a number of decades from initial infection if it does at all. Therapy is available as well to prevent this. Despite some gloom, most people who have the virus, when they die, they die with it, not of it.
