Beyond the Odds (BTO) youth blogs have been picked up and re-purposed by BlackVoices.com. Check out the first in the series: “Tu Tienes SIDA.”
The piece begins: “The day I found out I had AIDS was a nightmare. April 12, 2006. I’d spent 2 weeks in the hospital waiting to find out why I was constantly getting sick. I was sitting in the hospital room with my mother, a little anxious and very concerned.
My mom told me in an upbeat voice, ‘Be patient, everything will be just fine.'”
Stay tuned for future posts from BTO on BlackVoices.com.
