"Dennis is not dying of AIDS... he is living with HIV."


I am a woman affected by HIV and AIDS. I fell in love with a man that has been living with his diagnosis for 18 years now. He is my hero. Dennis always holds his head up high and never lets himself give up his daily fight. He is on five pills a day which keep him alive and well.

We are getting married in the fall of 2011 and are attempting to have our first child. We can have a healthy baby and that is wonderful news compared to the things you used to hear about not being able to do 20 years ago. Dennis and I live for each day and thank God he has given us another one. We know the road isn't always easy... but we are travelling it and enjoying it. Dennis is not dying of AIDS... he is living with HIV.
