I will not stop until a cure is found for HIV/AIDS because On Feb. 2nd, 2010, I lost the love of my life who was also my soul mate. I made a vow to him on his death bed, that if it's the last thing I do on this earth this horrible disease will cease to exist.
His brother, is HIV+ and continues to fight the stigma of being positive every single day. I will not stop until this comes to an end.
Four years ago, I lost my best friend who was my protector, confidant, my rock, my strength, encourager, my will to keep living when I lost Nik... basically he was my everything including my fiancé to complications of AIDS four years ago.
Fourteen years ago, I lost a friend who was like a brother to me to HIV/AIDS. Alex was one of the kindest, sweetest, gentlest, most caring men you would have ever hoped to have met. He would have touched your soul with his smile.
I have several friends who are HIV/AIDS+, so it is for them that I partake in this event. I will not let these deaths or these battles be in vain, and I'm asking you to please join me in helping me not let them be in vain either by helping me step further to my goal and therefore making one step closer to a cure.
