Response from Dr. Frascino
Congratulations and WOO-HOO!
Thanks also for reinforcing two of my recurring themes in this forum: "symptoms, no matter what they are, do not equal HIV disease!" and "symptoms are notoriously unreliable in predicting HIV infection."
Donations to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be made by credit card, PayPal, check, money order, direct wire transfer and cash among other means. Donation information can be found on the Foundation's Web site at www.concertedeffort.org. Thank you for your desire to help others who weren't so lucky in dodging the HIV bullet.
Be well. Stay well.
