"The Man Who Had HIV and Now Does Not"

      I was purchasing some film, milk and other assorted necessities including a surprisingly cheap yet well equipped home sewing (emergency) kit ($4.99) from Walgreens and as I was waiting to approach the cashier I spotted a magazine that caught my eye.

          I admit, first it was the chaotic cover image of New York Magazine's latest issue (June 6th) that displayed seemingly dead bushes suggesting a secret burial site that caught my eye. However, we are not here to discuss the all more visually prevalent Long Island serial killer. Rather, we are here to highlight an individual who's premature burial tho seemingly inescapable has miraculously been delayed.  What convinced me to purchase this issue was the headline that read "The Man Who Was Cured Of AIDS." You can access the online article HERE. Award wining journalist, Tina Rosenberg, does a beautiful job writing about Timothy Brown's risky transplant that led to his cure of HIV.   The article also features subtly chilling images by the very talented Dan Winters and here is an example:

This is incredible news and there isn't any way for me to do it any more justice than to bring it to your attention. Please take some time to read through the article.
