A mother who lost her HIV+ son supports continued services #saveryanwhitepartd #nyhaad
I am honored to help in anyway I can with this cause. My son was diagnosed with HIV in 2000. I lost him in September of 2012 due to complications with his disease. I know what it is like to live with the fear of losing someone you love because they are not getting the proper medical attention they need. My son was on meds for years but his hepatitis was not treated so in essence that is what caused his death. I wish you and your family well and hope you live a long and happy life.
