Frannie Peabody Center Wants You to ‘Know Your Status’
The Frannie Peabody Center is offering free HIV testing so you can 'know your status'...
I had the pleasure of meeting Frannie and raising money for her cause. Who is Frannie Peabody? According to Wikipedia:
Her work as an activist began at the age of 80 when her eldest grandchild was diagnosed with AIDS and continued for 18 years until her death in 2001. She helped establish The AIDS Project, which became Maine's largest AIDS service organization, and co-founded the Peabody House assisted living facility. In 2002, after her death, the two organizations merged, becoming the Frannie Peabody Center.
She was the coolest woman ever and would be proud that her work continues.
Coming up on June 27th, it's National HIV Testing Day.
30 years after the epidemic of AIDS, the stigma continues to be a roadblock to testing. Do't let it be.
The testing is anonymous and free. It's important you know your status...
