Twenty Years Later, Magic Johnson Is "Living Proof" of Surviving HIV

November 7, 2011

The Los Angeles Times: It wasn't only basketball players who heard (Magic) Johnson on that day and expected only sadness and illness to follow. Michael Weinstein, president and co-founder of AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), said the general feeling in the HIV and AIDS community was simple. "He won't be with us much longer," Weinstein said. Now, Weinstein said, Johnson is a symbol that people can live well with the disease (Pucin, 11/6).
