Welcome to My Personal Page
Remember the early years of this virus. It was pretty much a death sentence. I wanted to help make a difference so I started to volunteer at AID Atlanta. As more friends died I began to give up. I stopped volunteering. I stopped going to funerals. I stopped believing we could end this epidemic.
In the mid 90's I was working in the reserach field. Some of the work contributed to the development of early treatments for HIV. When I became a nurse in 2010 HIV was no longer a death sentence. It was a chronic condition that could be treated with daily medication. I learned that getting access to that medication was a barrier, so I became a Ryan White Case Manager for a couple years. Now I am back in research. We have come a long way since the 80's. Yet we still do not have a cure, or a vaccine,. But we are getting closer. Please help support the work to cure and end this disease.
