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.

No, Shawnet, it is YOU who is AIDS/LifeCycle personified. Your "I Can Do It" attitude is truly an inspiration for all of us: gay and straight... positive and negative... athletically and couch potato inclined :-)

You have a very special gift, Shawnet, and I thank you on behalf of the entire AIDS/LifeCycle community for sharing it with us.

Training rides for AIDS/LifeCycle 8 begin THIS WEEKEND. I hope to see you out there for another magical season.



My dear Cuz,

You have no idea how proud I am of you! I've been talking about you to my friends and my patients.

I KNOW you will do this again next year...and who knows who will join you!

Much love,

We told some medical war stories and some lies, and agreed that we are both fine except that our bodies are falling apart.
