Welcome to My Personal Page
Please join me as I raise funds and awareness for AIDS Walk Austin 2014. There are currently an estimated 7,000 Central Texans living with HIV and AIDS - we have done a lot over the years to bring this disease under control but we are not there yet.
As many of you know, Texas is one of the states that refused federal funding to expand Medicaid coverage. What you may or may not be aware of is that the changes in health care funding were designed to reach those in poverty and most in need through the Medicaid expansion. Without the expansion in states like Texas, some of those most in need of medical care are getting lost in the shuffle. For some, the only sources left for getting the medicines they need to survive are the limited drug company charity programs, local charities, or whatever their doctors can cobble together for them. With other cutbacks in government funding at all levels the situation for those most in need is only getting worse.
