Rigoberto Maruri

Rigoberto Maruri, San Francisco, Calif.; Diagnosed in 1991

What I say to people just diagnosed is that there is hope. Now there are a lot of drugs available, but you also need to take care of yourself. Take your medications on time. Eat and sleep regularly. Have a job and find something to do, because if you keep yourself busy, it keeps you healthy.
