HIV Cure: Have You Grown More Hopeful?

I definitely have a lot more hope about the cure than I have ever had. What people do not know is that HIV cure research has been going on for over a decade, but it has recently received a lot more attention and funding since Dr. Gero Hutter from Berlin cured Timothy Brown. We are waiting for information about other patients that have been exposed to the protocol that Timothy was given. Let's hope his case can be replicated as we try to find simpler, cheaper and less risky ways to cure people. I think this will happen in my lifetime. This excitement drives me now to spend a lot of my time as an HIV cure activist.
