This weekend I discovered some very good news- there is an HIV cure in the works!

According to researchers at Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, big strides have been made to eliminate the disease. From The Independent:

“After years of research, the team from Temple University in Pennsylvania used their technique to eliminate the virus from human cells by ‘snipping’ it out. The successful experiments took place in the lab, but the team is confident the treatment could be trialled on humans within three years.

It’s also important for me to share a great walk and cause; AIDS Walk New York, happening Sunday, May 15th!

AIDS Walk New York is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). The Walk begins and ends in Central Park and usually takes about 2.5 hours to complete.

Research and awareness of HIV and AIDS has always been very important to me; I was involved in a HIV/AIDS Awareness group in high school and have researched the disease over the years. After living along NYC’s Riverside Park and seeing it for two summers, I decided to finally participate in the AIDS Walk this year!

You can learn more, read my story or donate to my walk here. Hope you can join a great walk and cause!
