My little brother, Chad, died of AIDS in 1993. With the current medicines, a lot of people with AIDS now are living long, healthy lives, but many people are still suffering and dying. In 2017, 1.8 million people were infected with HIV, and 940,000 died of AIDS-related causes.
The end of AIDS is now within our reach, but many people can not afford to get tested &/or treated, including very young people, many kicked out of their homes for being LGBTQ, and living on the street. The San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center offer many ways of helping anyone and everyone who needs help, including the life-saving services of shelter, HIV Testing and Treatments.
Next Summer, over 3,000 Cyclists and helpers will participate in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. I will be one of them! Thank you in advance for considering joining me in this cause by donating!
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me.
Let's work together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past!
