30 years ago, in 1988, I tested positive for HIV, when I was just 20 years old. In 1995 I was diagnosed with AIDS, as I had pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) and 25 t-cells. Things looked extremely bleak and it was super scary. But then I recovered from PCP and a couple of other opportunistic infections. My first AIDS Walk New York was the Spring of 1995 and it was wonderful. Later that year I joined GHMC as a client and they helped me out in many different ways.

I was lucky -- I had access to medications, doctors, a supportive family & friends, and housing. Not everyone has these things to remain healthy, even though medications are so much better now. Thats why agencies like GMHC are important.

As most of you know, I am a psychotherapist and a lot of my work is with clients living with HIV. I started seeing a 23 year old gay man who recently tested positive for HIV. Just this past Friday he signed up to become a member at GMHC and will receive much support there from meals to housing options, while he and I work to integrate HIV into his identity so he can live a happy, healthy, and fulfilled life.

Since that first AIDS Walk NY in 1995 I have raised over $85,000.

As this is my 30th year of living with HIV, I would like to raise the most money ever which would be around $8,000, so I am making that my personal goal. Please, if you can make a donation, that would be awesome. Also, please direct people to my page to donate. :-)

Thanks so much for all you love and support. We're all in this together.

Peace & love,
