Robbi's daughter is 12 years old and has been in our care since 2006. Sara was a newborn at that time and Robbi had lost all hope of her surviving. Our team at Baylor labored hard to pull Sara out of danger, as the American Foundation for Children with AIDS supported the effort and provided the medication she needed. Sara's health is now well managed as she lives a normal life just like other children. Robbi spoke with tears in her eyes as she expressed her appreciation for her daughter's treatments over the years.
This story brings us great hope in addition to many more we hear about each day. We remember days when we didn't have this kind of positive feedback. Many young adults started as toddlers between 2007 and 2010 on the first line of treatments, which failed and were switched to second line treatments. Children failed to respond to even the second line and we almost lost them. Thankfully, we have been able to provide a third line treatment since 2015 which has been successful.
The team here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS thanks you for supporting this project and the work we do for the children in Africa. As you start to make decisions regarding your end of year giving, please keep us in mind so we can continue our good work into 2018 and beyond. We wish you a new year full of many blessings and as much hope as you have shared with us. If you would like to learn even more about what we do or how you can meet some of the children you have helped, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
