Pennsylvania: Valley Activists Still Fighting -- FACT Continues to Raise Money and Awareness About AIDS
September 20, 2010
FACT (Fighting AIDS Continuously Together) marks its 25th anniversary this month. The Lehigh Valley non-profit's longevity surprises even board members like Lou James, who recalls that in the late 1980s, some experts were predicting a cure for HIV within four years.
Providing those affected by HIV/AIDS with a better life has long been FACT's top mission. Since its founding in 1986, the organization has raised more than $2 million, donating money to individuals and families, and to AIDS prevention and research.
