Letter from a Positively Aware reader. So Amazing
Last fall I was on the cover of Positively Aware magazine. The cover story was about my HIV education campaign supported by Merck called Living Positive by Design. I got an overwhelming response from the article but just this week I was sent a letter that was really moving from someone who was very sick with HIV but read the article and with support from others has restructured his life. It’s a great reminder to all of us who work in the HIV community that we do make a difference. I emailed him and with his permission I an posting the letter–I removed his name. He is only 28. It’s a call for many things–early treatment, universal health care, fighting the stigma of HIV. It also illustrates the need for emotional support. I mean no disrespect to the Catholic religion. I am not Catholic and this is just one persons opinion. To Everyone–We are not in this alone. Sorry if it’s hard to read–multiple photocopies–but its worth it.
