The name of Twana Lawler's autobiography is My Life: From Tragedy to Destiny and what a life it's been! And what a story she has to tell! She spent 10 years completely celibate and then was diagnosed as HIV+. The diagnosis was so devastating that she refused to even see a doctor for the next three years. When a seizure finally sent her to a doctor, she had progressed to full-blown AIDS and dementia. 

According to the doctors, she wasn't supposed to live but not only has she lived buy she has thrived! In this interview she discusses the roles that faith, family and medicine have played in what can only be described as a miraculous recovery. 

Stay tuned after the interview, because I discuss how I learned to love water by creating my own infusions!
