Yes, I lost a family friend. Prior to blood supply screening he contracted it from a transfusion during surgery.<br />
And this was during a time when vile, hateful, people who called themselves Christians were preaching that this disease was a just punishment.
my brothers friend i dont know how long he has had it but 4 years ago is when he told my brother he had it
Yes, a couple for friends still alive, and one lost and very much missed.
Not together, separate individuals. But sad all the same, they are alive and relatively well, still enjoying life. Live where there is medication available, around the world so many not so fortunate.
