“You’re Not Going to Die”: A Journey into Gratitude
In 1983 David Ross Patient was diagnosed with HIV.
He thought life wasn’t worth living, but as he stood on the edge of a cliff with the intention to jump and end his life, a voice said to him “you’re not going to die.”
David is still here to tell his story, and I’m very excited to share his inspirational journey from the brink of suicide to immense gratitude.
David has spent his life supporting others, breaking down the walls of stigma and encouraging people with HIV to be a ‘positive positive.’
David’s friends have created a GoFundMe campaign to support David as he faces another serious operation.
If you’re inspired by David’s journey and feel moved to support him (I know I did), head on over to his GoFundMe campaign and pledge a couple of dollars. You can also connect with David on facebook and his website.
Thanks for joining me for this gratitude interview. I look forward to sharing more with you in the coming months.
