Pamela Anderson has a lot to be thankful for!
The sexy "Baywatch" alum took to Instagram over the weekend to share some big news -- she's officially cured of hepatitis C.
Anderson celebrated by posting a totally nude snap with the good news. "I am CURED!!! - I just found out #nomorehepc #thankyou #blessing #family #prayer #live I pray anyone living with Hep C can qualify or afford treatment," she wrote with the racy photo, which we don't believe is new. "It will be more available soon. I know treatment is hard to get still...#dontlosehope ."
The 48-year-old actress was diagnosed with hep C in 2002, after allegedly contracting the disease from sharing a tattoo needle with ex-husband Tommy Lee. He denied the allegations.
Anderson opened up about the disease while chatting with People magazine over the summer, revealing that she initially felt like the diagnosis was a "death sentence."
"Sixteen years ago that was [presented to me] as a death sentence," she told the site. "I think it really worked on my self esteem. Even though I may have looked confident on the outside, I think it really was a dark cloud that lingered over me."
Pam tried a number of alternative medicines before giving a newly-FDA approved anti-viral medication a go -- and thanks to the drug, the blonde beauty is finally cured.
"I don't have any liver damage and I don't have any side effects," she said at the time, only a few months into treatment. "I'm living my life the way I want to but it could have eventually have caused me some problems and so it was a real blessing that I was able to get the medicine. I'm half way there."
"I actually just look in the mirror everyday and I feel like I'm looking younger and younger and I feel like I'm getting those 20 years back," she added.
