My family has been greatly affected by this virus with my brother living with it for 15 years, passing away in 2006 at the age of 46 from complications related to AIDS. The photo above is the last time my family saw my brother alive, and rests on the mantle of my office to remind me of the importance of the work we do here at St. Stephen’s.  ~Hope Campbell
