INFINITY - 6705
SO EXCITED TO BE BACK FOR ANOTHER YEAR. it is a true testament to the resilience that we as a community can continue to come together and fight for a worthy cause, that still affects millions worldwide.
this year marks 12 walk as a team and I am so honored and blessed to have those who have joined me since the beginning and have grown to be part of our team. We have gone from a small group of friends to a big family and its all thanks to you. so here's all the infinite possibilities we have in the future. last year was our most successful walk to date as a team we reached highbred exceptions then before and we stranded together as one. this year we up it again and we are back together so there is no doubt in my mind that we will meet and exceed once again.
As always we walk with reason, with heart and compassion for those who have lost, who live or are dealing with HIV/AIDS related heatlh issues. we have a long way with medicine and helping those in need. but unfortunately we still need to help all those in need and those we have lost.
What Is HIV?
HIV is a virus that attacks the human immune system. There is no cure for HIV. Unlike some other viruses, such as the common cold, HIV cannot be cleared from the body. However, there are treatments available. Talk to your healthcare provider and see below for more information.
How can HIV affect your body?
HIV attacks and destroys CD4 T-cells — important immune system cells that help your body fight infections. The more CD4 T-cells that are destroyed, the weaker your immune system can become. With fewer CD4 T-cells due to HIV, it can be harder for your body to fight illnesses and infections.
What is the difference between HIV and AIDS?
Being HIV positive is not the same as having AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). HIV is a virus that kills CD4 T-cells in the body. Over time, if so many CD4 T-cells are killed that the body has a reduced ability to fight infection, HIV can advance to AIDS. HIV infection advances to AIDS when there are less than 200 CD4 T-cells per cubic millimeter of blood. If this happens, it means your immune system has become very weak, and you can quickly become very sick.
How is HIV transmitted?
HIV is transmitted through contact with certain body fluids, such as semen, vaginal or anal fluids, breast milk, and blood. Contact with these body fluids can occur during unprotected sex or when sharing needles or other items with body fluids on them. Mothers can pass the HIV virus to their babies during pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding. You CANNOT transmit HIV through contact with sweat, tears, saliva, bath or pool water, or by sharing dishes or drinking glasses, hugging or shaking hands.
What are the steps you can take to live healthy with HIV?
HIV does not have a cure, but there are steps you can take to live healthy with HIV, including taking HIV medicines. HIV treatment helps lower your viral load and, as a result, helps protect your immune system.
Ask your healthcare provider about other things you can do to help stay healthy, including:
Avoiding sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Using protection every time you have sex.
Never sharing or reusing needles.
Getting help with substance abuse, stress, or depression.
Exercising and eating well.
Stopping smoking. Smoking can be more harmful to people living with HIV.
