AIDS Organization Continues Support in Southern Nevada
May 3, 2011
AFAN (Aid for AIDS of Nevada) is one of many support organizations founded in the mid-1980s, when the disease was a death sentence. While advances in medical treatment have helped people with HIV/AIDS live longer, more productive lives, those affected still have many needs, said Jennifer Morss, executive director of AFAN.
"Death is the easy part. It is living that's difficult," Morss said. "I can get a cold and just take one or two days off work, and I'm fine. One of our clients ... might be out a whole week -- or a month."
