My Dream is a World Without AIDS

My claim to fame is being one of the longest surviving HIV+ people in the universe. This isn’t exactly the coolest title to have, but I am proud of the fact that I’ve made it so far. I attribute much of my success and survivability to my family, friends, positive attitude, extreme fitness, medication, self-help authors, meditation, and downright tenacity. Along with these tools, I also have the team at AIDS Research Alliance to thank. Organizations like ARA are putting mad scientist hours into projects to rid the world of AIDS.

With that said, my dream is a world without AIDS. It is my firm believe that the ARA has the same dream and they are doing something about it! Please donate to the AIDS Research Alliance and help them succeed!

I personally donate 10% of the proceeds from my book, Survivor: One Man’s Battle with HIV, Hemophilia, and Hepatitis C, to the AIDS Research Alliance.

I hope this article not only inspired you, but also has you thinking of ways you can help rid the world of AIDS.

Thanks for reading, listening, and watching…

    “I am proud of the fact that I’ve made it so far” . . . me, too, Vaughn. Hang in there, my friend.

  2. You are awesome, Dan…and an incredible inspiration! Are you familiar with the SIV virus and of the theory of how HIV/AIDS got started in the first place?

    • Hi Laurie!

      Thanks for the kind words… I am very familiar with SIV and SHIV. I have read and follow tons of material based on many potential HIV starting points… SIV is absolutely one of the stronger theories.

      Thanks again,
      Vaughn
