On Sunday October 21st we will be speaking with Sarah and Sophie Denis-Johnston on, the daughters of Rebecca Denison. Sophie and Sarah Denison-Johnston were born at San Francisco General Hospital in March of 1996. Their mother, Rebecca Denison, founder of WORLD (Women Organized to Respond to Life-threatening Diseases) participated in the phase 1 trial of nevirapine that led to our negative status. Their mother wrote an article about her decision here: http://www.thebody.com/content/art12663.html
Sophie and Sarah feel so honored to have been a part of this monumental step in approaching an AIDS free generation in that they know it's possible to stop mother-daughter transmission of HIV. Their only question is why should we be called fortunate. It's their hope that in the future having access to these types of drugs isn't a privilege. It should be accessible to everyone, no matter who and where they are.
