HIV Longevity Still Fighting…

Contributors was originally started by Vaughn Ripley as a personal blog. Over time, he has crossed paths with many other HIV survivors and eventually Vaughn started asking some of these other brave souls to author some blog posts on here.

If you are an HIV survivor, and would be interested in posting some of your stories and/or thoughts on this blog, feel free to send Vaughn a message.

Here is a short bio for each of the contributors on this blog:

This bad batch resulted in him getting HIV. Vaughn is one of the longest living HIV+ people on the planet. Vaughn is a published writer and successful information technology businessman. He has raced motorcycles, rock climbed, attempted Mount Rainier, and run a marathon. In his spare time, he enjoys writing, playing guitar, weight lifting, mountain biking, and off-roading. He lives with his wife and two children in Maryland.

  1. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HIV) for the past 5 years now; I had spent a lot of money going from one Hospital to another looking for way to get rid of this disease, the hospital have been my home everyday residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr. Akughe helped someone in curing his HIV disease using his healing Herbs, quickly I copied his email just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to a preparation for the herbs items, of which I did exactly what he instructed me to do, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, few days after i went back to the same hospital that previously confirmed me as HIV/AIDs positive and this time the result declared me negative to the deadly disease of HIV/ AIDS….so I decided to share my testimony, that nothing is impossible with God, God use a man to healed me. No matter what you are passing through, no matter how deadly the sickness is and no matter what the situation is God that did mine is still going to do yours, suffering from AIDS, ALS, asthma.. Cancer, any kind of disease, you can rich him now via ? email address: (akughesolutionhome@gmail. com) Whatsapp him on +2349063552570 or +2348162219339…..
