Documentary on 30th Anniversary of HIV and AIDS

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Friday and we have almost made it through another work week. I hope you are having a safe and great week so far. It has been another busy week for Dab the AIDS Bear and me.

I have been struggling to get work done because of major problems with the laptop we have at the project. I was hoping the new laptop would have been delivered by now. It is almost impossible to get everything done right now. Between the blogs, emails, reports and social media; I am spending over twelve hour a day to try and just keep up.

I did get some great news yesterday. Last year, a documentary crew followed Dab the AIDS Bear and me around for a few months while we were speaking at events. During this time period was also when the governor of Florida was trying to change the eligibility requirements for Ryan White services where more than 2,000 Floridians would have been endangered of losing services. There were already over 4,000 Floridians on the ADAP (AIDS Drug Assistance Program) waiting list to receive life saving HIV medications.

Here is the link to the teaser video they sent out about the documentary: http://vimeo.com/43573584

I hope you enjoyed the video. I will post the link to the full documentary as soon as I receive it.

Hope you have a great Friday!

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
