Four Covers, Four Stories: The Four Photos That Made It to the Cover -- and the Stories Behind Them

A Day With HIVA Day With HIV

8:15 a.m.: Ankeny, Iowa. Brian Walker: "David was born three and a half months premature, weighing two pounds with an HIV viral load of 525,000. Yes, he is a MIRACLE. He was separated from three siblings who were negative. Their adoptive family didn't want David, because he was positive. His picture says it all. At three years old, he is my HERO. He now has a viral load of 54, and the spirit of an angel. I was chosen to be his Daddy!"

11:00 a.m.: London, England. Garry Brough: "I'm the admin/moderator for the UK's largest network of people with HIV -- myHIV.org.uk. Having lived with HIV for over 20 years, I am proud to wear the t-shirt. Every day is a day with HIV, in both my work and personal life. Mostly, they are good days with HIV these days, thankfully."

11:00 a.m.: Virginia. Melissa: "Pop my morning Isentress (raltegravir) and head up to the mountains to pick my angel's first apples. Just another day with HIV."

2:00 p.m.: New York City. The MISTER team encourages users of their site and app to communicate their safe sex strategy and treat each other with respect and an open mind -- including members who are HIV-positive. CEO Carl Sandler says, "We must ask ourselves how we are perpetuating ignorance and shame in our community, regardless of our HIV status, through the actions we take and the decisions we make around dating and sex."
