Patient Advocate Foundation...
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Received snail mail the other day; April 1 specifically. It is thick envelope from some place called Patient Advocate Foundation and in bold print "Co-Pay Relief". They are from Hampton VA.

There are phone numbers to call and most likely I will. But this also could be an April fools scam. Has anyone else here heard of this outfit?

A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

We all have are stories on how we ended up here. But do you remember what was your first reaction when you were told you had turned HIV positive or that you have AIDS. Mine was not what I thought it would be. I kind of knew it was a matter of time since I was putting my self at risk for 20 plus years. And I was lucky enough to evade the inevitable for those 20 years .So when my doctor told me im positive I was not surprised. However I went out of his office and went into my car and cried… read more
