Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page.

HIV/AIDS impacts us more than you know.  Over 3,000 persons in Rhode Island are infected with HIV/AIDS. These over 3,000 people deal with not only the health risks, but the phsycological effects and the stygmatism of living with HIV/AIDS everyday. Something most of us cannot even imagine.

91% of HIV/AIDS cases are between the ages of 30-50+ years of age. Yes this is my age group and most of my freinds fall into this group as well. I have close freinds and family that deal with this every single day. 

73% of persons living with HIV/AIDS are male. 

21% of persons living with HIV/AIDS identify as heterosexual. This is not a gay mans fight, we have have to work together. We have to have open dialogue and we have to have better education about HIV/AIDS

Approximately 50,000 people are newly infected with HIV each year in the U.S.

Help get this number to Zero one step at a time. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you would please consider a donation in any amount your able I would personally be grateful but you will also of the gratitude of the 3000 Rhode Islanders living with this disease
