Donate to AIDS/LifeCycle online Send a message of support to a participant on ALC7



Maybe it was some kind of divine wind that pushed me up the steps to the ALC7 meeting. Maybe it was my guilt of not being able to help. Or maybe it was the spirits of my good friends who lead me to the ALC7 office that night. I’ll never truly know but I went to the meeting and signed up. It was the best decision I had ever made. I have been training and fundraising since September and now I have the power to make a difference. One day when I meet up with my friends who have gone before me, I can tell them that in honor of them and the millions of people living with AIDS/HIV, I became part of the education, care and the search for a cure.

I am so with you on this trip. I think you remember cuz, that I was part of an AIDS hospice in the early 90's? Many of those men and women are still with me...I've asked them to help you gently up those hills. May their strength be with you! Namaste.
