It was New Year’s Eve, 1991, when a doctor told me I had HIV. I went back to the shelter where I lived and while everyone around me celebrated, I cried myself to sleep. The women of BABES became my family. Through all the steps I’ve taken, they have been there for me. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without them.
Every day, your support of BABES Network—YWCA is changing lives like Tina’s.
Whether a woman is newly diagnosed and feels like she has nowhere to turn, or she’s been living with HIV for many years and can thrive with a strong network – you’ve been there by her side.
I asked Tina what your generosity means to her – and I want to share what she told me:
Your support means the world to people who live with this – you give us a place to go, a sisterhood. You help people realize that they can live a long time with this disease. We may not be in the news every day, but there are a lot of us. Don’t forget about us, we’re still here.
Thanks to you, for 25 years BABES has been giving women living with HIV a place to turn for support. This year, in honor of BABES’ 25th anniversary, will you make a gift of $25 or more?
Thank you for keeping BABES in your thoughts this holiday season.
