Hope for HIV

Sadly, a part of our Hemophiliac history includes HIV and AIDS from the tainted blood that a lot of Hemophiliacs recieved in the 1980's and early 1990's. I am sad to say that I know of far too many Hemophiliacs that have been affected by HIV and AIDS that is why it does give me hope for them to read articles like this. It's not very often that you get to to a disease be cured in your lifetime so hopefully with more reasearch and funding things like Hemophilia and HIV can be things of the past.
Please take a minute to read to following article.

  1. If you're interested in seeing more about this story, PBS in America is running a documentary on the history of Hemophilia and HIV that was produced recently. I'm not sure if it's available in Canada yet, but if you're interested, there's info on it at badblooddocumentary.com
