Today is THE RED PUMP PROJECT’S National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. THE RED PUMP PROJECT does great work promoting awareness of HIV/AIDS with a variety of functions around the country.
As with most things that initially horrify, scare and/or concern us, I believe we’ve become apathetic to this HIV/AIDS. Because it isn’t constantly in the news or possibly because we haven’t personally been affected by the disease, we forget that education of our children, our grandchildren and even ourselves is tremendously important.
While great advances have been made in the treatment of HIV/AIDS, there still isn’t a cure. This is not a disease you develop, like cancer or Parkinson’s, it is a transmittable disease that can be prevented. Prevented with knowledge.
I hope you’ll check out THE RED PUMP PROJECT and support them like I have.
