Greg and Dan's message to others living with HIV/AIDS and/or hepatitis C:
"Try to keep in mind that stress is probably the second biggest influence on your health to be avoided. The number one greatest influence on your health (emotionally and physically) is your personal happiness, which will give you the power to overcome or live with any adverse causes. The world will not end until it is your time. Meanwhile, live as well as can be, for as long as can be. Don't allow life's gratifications to go without notice."
