Humanitarian Seeks Assistance

Throughout my journey, I have had several doctors tell me that my symptoms were “a figment” of my “imagination.”  They told me that "nobody cares" about me.  They advised me to “stop writing letters” and to "stop fighting” all together.  I purged most of their ill-directed advice and argued them that they were wrong. 

I know that with the unwavering support of my family and friends that I will fight this until the day I die.  But, I am too sick and too tired to fight this alone any longer, as trying to save the world has taken a great physical and emotional toll on me.

Inititally, I was definitely fighting for myself, but I have come to humbly accept that my plight transcended me a long, long, time ago.  I am no longer fighting for my life.  I am now fighting for yours. 

We live in an amazing democratic society where every voice counts.  If you are moved by the content that you are about to read, please write a letter to your representatives, on behalf of my cause.

I submit that the letter read something like: "I support funding and research on HIV-Negative AIDS cases."
