I Am Looking Forward to Turning 80

Terry shared his journey toward health in hopes of building support for the fight against AIDS. This spring, we are celebrating courage by highlighting his story every week this month (read his previous stories here). Your support has helped fund the programs that transformed his life.

"My coping skills and acceptance of HIV are part of my care at ARCW. Now, I know that life doesn't have to hurt so much. My team has helped me manage my mental health so I can focus on getting healthy.

Today, I am looking forward to having a complete life.

I am looking forward to the birth of my grandson. I am looking forward to finishing my education. I have under two years left to complete college. I am looking forward to graduating. I am looking forward to one day turning 80 years old."
