25 years ago, I lost one of my favorite persons to AIDS - my cousin Hernando. Less that one year after his death, thanks to science and billions of dollars in R&D, the disease ceased to be a death sentence ...provided you had access to health insurance or money to pay for treatment. That part has not changed. Thousands of people around the world - including here at home - continue to die of AIDS because they cannot afford treatment.
Your support can help alleviate some of that needless suffering...
From June 5 to June 11, 2022, I will be biking, alongside 3,000 other cyclists, roadies and virtual Cyclists, in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
This year, I’ll be one of these cyclists. I will be honoring the memory of my cousin Hernando, who was also the first person to show me how to maneuver a gear bike.
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. We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS finally a thing of the past for EVERYBODY.
