Sometimes waiting for a kidney transplant takes a long time; as long as 5-10 years. So, some people accept a kidney with hepatitis C to help them get transplanted sooner. 

Hepatitis C is a curable virus that causes liver disease.  It can be cured 97 times out of 100 (97%) with medication. The virus will not harm your liver once you are cured. It also will not harm your new kidney.
