Sometimes we are so ungrateful for all that we have, yet many people out there count their blessings each day as they try to make an honest living.

An HIV positive mother of four children is such an inspiration to all. After being told she was HIV positive while pregnant with her last born, her husband refused to support her and their children. She was all alone with her children and it was only the clinic staff who supported her during her difficult pregnancy. She was self- employed and at times business was slow but she is a strong motivated women of Africa, who not only single handed provides for her immediate family but also saves money to send to her family in Cameroon each month and money for her oldest child to do a course in Beauty therapy.

Her biggest fear was waiting for her new born babies PCR result at 6 weeks.

How overjoyed she was when the result came back negative. This result once again gave her hope and made her realise that there is life after being diagnosed with HIV. It all depends on the person what they intend to do with it.
