Hi Rachel,
I just wanted to say thank you for your support and inspiration. I found out I was Poz Jan 2007 at first I was really scared but then I was greeted by some of the most awesome people at CAP and through the help and support of many wonderful people my daughter and I have a home I went to school and am now working as a pharmacy tech, my daughter had the support of Teen to Teen and accomplished great things at her school educating her peers about HIV and positive life styles. I can't say enough about how grateful I am to have the support of everyone at CAP. Keep up the great work you are needed and wanted!
