Why do you RISE UP to HIV?

When I was diagnosed with HIV and Hepatitis C I had a choice. To give in to my diagnosis or to rise up, stand out, speak up. I chose to share my experience, strength, and hope to encourage others to do the same.  See the latest twitter campaign below, asking tweeters - WHY DO YOU RISE UP TO HIV? Add your response to the comments section below this post or e mail me your response to -  there is no character limitation on e mailed or posted comments.
