You make all the right choices and think that you’re safe. Then, life slaps you in the face with a harsh reality that you will never forget.
A woman named Renee Burgess out of Jacksonville, Florida is working to raise money to tell a story that could change the lives of millions of women. She says that even though she was married and monogamous, she still contracted HIV from her husband.
Renee is planning to write a book about her experience and will share numerous stories about her life since 2007, when she first found out that she was infected. She also says that she had her husband put in jail for infecting her.
This book will talk about my life in the deepest way that nobody has yet to ever see. Not only will this book go into detail of how I became infected with the HIV virus but also the life I have had to live for the past 5 years dealing with my HIV diagnosis. Which includes dating, school, the birth of children, depression, suicidal thoughts, and what it takes for someone who has gone through all of this to move forward and come out on top. I will also give details on how I went through having my then husband put in jail for infecting me.
Her deadline is coming up, and she is preparing to tell her story in 9 – 10 chapters. She says that she wants to confront the HIV/AIDS issue directly, rather than avoiding it as so many others have done. She says that all of the proceeds from the project will go toward her book, which she wants to serve as a beacon of hope for people who are in similar situations.
