- South African Actress Sadie Brown Speaks Out For HIV
An inspiring story of a young girl who was diagnosed with HIV through no fault of her own. Now an actress, she has spoken out for HIV. She is speaking out for HIV and we find that inspiring. A whole life of drug dependency awaits her if there is no cure.
We started this site to first educate, and then inspire and then find true cures. The many stories from around the world only reinforces the notion that there is a need for CuraHOPE. In the future, pharmaceutical companies might be bought up, people might lose jobs, but at least nobody will have to die. It’s a risk we at CuraHOPE are willing to take to eradicate diseases from the world.
