How Jimmy Kimmel's Story About His Son Relates to HIV Health Care

As a person living with a chronic health condition I am concerned with this current administration.
As a person living with HIV, I am concerned about funding cuts and other threats to the care that I receive. I would love to hear about your health journey. Have you had to have a surgery like Billy Kimmel? Are you dependent on medications but concerned with the fear of losing health coverage? I encourage you to be brave like Jimmy and share your health journey here, on YouTube and other social media formats. Be sure to use #Health as you share your story. By sharing your journey, you will help to give others strength and you will also let politicians know that we will not simply stand by while they strip away our healthcare.
Jimmy, continued recovery to your son and best of luck to you and your family in the weeks and months to come. We wish you all the best in the world. Please be sure to like my video, share and subscribe to my channel. Until my next video, do something positive.

My HIV Journey
I am simply a guy who on June 6, 2011, received the news that over 33 million people have received: I am HIV positive. I decided in that split moment to record the journey that I was embarking on so that I might help others as they receive that news.
I am not a doctor and I do not endorse any agenda other than simply living a healthy life. I am an activist and advocate and simply want to make the world a better place. I hold a degree in sociology and psychology. I am a product of the Missouri Foster System and this is one of my main passions, second only to the work I do with HIV/AIDS outreach and prevention.
I embrace a sex-positive model. People are going to have sex; it is a natural part of who we are. However we need to make sure that it is safe. I can be found on weekends throughout St. Louis, Missouri, passing out condoms and safe-sex kits.
I am now an M.S.W. student at Saint Louis University's College of Public Health and Social Justice and the School of Social Work.
Whether in St. Louis, D.C. or around the nation, I always jump at the chance to help change not only policies to better serve those that need help but to also change the landscape of the society that we live in.
