Magic Johnson

‘I enjoy being the messenger for God in terms of letting people know about HIV and AIDS.’ Magic Johnson is one of NBA’s greatest players. In 1991, he told that he had HIV during his retirement with LA Lakers. His condition raises awareness to the public, especially since he published a guide entitled “What You Can Do to Avoid AIDS” to educate others. He also established a foundation named after him to support and fund HIV/AIDS research. Magic Johnson just hit a milestone many thought was impossible 24 years ago – he has lived through 20 years with HIV! Johnson has thrived, providing a vivid example of what’s possible when a person has access to the world’s best HIV/AIDS treatment. The sad part is that he is the exception, not the rule.
