Long-Term Survivors Thrive with HIV!

As we open Pride month, I am thankful for so many things, particularly your support. Today marks 38 years since the CDC first reported on a few mysterious cases of an unknown disease among gay men that we have since come to know as AIDS. Fittingly, this annual reminder of all those lost to this epidemic, also marks HIV Long-Term Survivors Day, a day to remember the countless people whose indomitable spirits and valuable lives have endured.
