Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Rachel,

WOW! Your CD4 count skyrocketed from 32 to 354??? Wonderful news! And your weight is back to normal and even your feet are almost 100%!?! BRAVO!!! I'm absolutely delighted. Your story should give great hope to others who are currently struggling with low CD4 counts, weight loss and other symptoms.

I'm also delighted you are working to get medications for your local hospice. I've found helping others who are in desperate need is an excellent way to keep one's own problems in their proper perspective. I'm also absolutely certain that every kindness and generous gesture you provide to others will be returned to you 1,000-fold.

May the higher powers continue to smile on you and provide you with health, happiness and peace.

Be well.

Dr. Bob

inspiring story.
