Today is National HIV Awareness Day. It’s really simple people, GET TESTED!! Know your status! It’s important. If you were tested last year, 2 years ago, whatever, get tested again. Your current status is important to your LIFE!!! Just last week I read there is a female crisis among poor black women in the Washington, DC area. http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-06-21/news/32356377_1_hiv-cases-hiv-rate-heterosexual-epidemic 

Whether you’re poor, middle class, rich, black, white or green, The HIV infection is an equal opportunity disease. WRAP UP ~ TAKE THE TEST~ TAKE CONTROL! What’s your excuse?

Will You Be Rocking Your Red Pumps?

Saturday March 10, is National Women & Girls’ HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.  This is a nationwide observance launched by the Office of Women’s Health in the United States to encourage people to take action against the fight against HIV/AIDS.  Those of you who have been following me, will remember that I wrote  a post about “The Red Pump Project” a couple of months ago; highlighting what they do, within my post I said I would remind you closer to the date, Well ladies the time is here. 

The Red Pump Project raises awareness about the impact of  HIV/AIDS on women and girls.   Black women represent 66% of  all new diagnoses.  This is a subject of high importance to every single one of us, whether in a committed relationship or not.  We need to take care of ourselves.  Ladies talk to your daughters, talk to your relatives, talk to your friends.  GET TESTED.  Too many of us are dying from what is mostly a preventable disease (there have been cases of tainted blood transfusions, but steps have now been put in place to prevent this, though too late for the father of a good friend of mine).  Please take the time to think before you act.  No amount of pleasure is worth dying for!  Click here for HIV/AIDS 101  http://www.theredpumpproject.org/hivaids-101/

Once again, THINK BEFORE YOU ACT, GET TESTED!!
