Hey Brenda, Congrats on this article and your continous work and efforts with educating the communties regarding HIV/AIDS. Because of my work schedule I had to stop attending meetings (I'm a Peer Educator & educate organizations, schools, churches etc & conduct a support group) but I will be onboard to help & support The Copasetic Women when you start up the thrift shop. I'm 56 & this is the group to join to share & express your experiences, problems, hopes & dreams. You continue to Go Girl!!

Ms. Brenda Lee Curry is wonderful. She has a kindered spirit that takes on a whole effct of its own. She came to my place of employment and spoke to the elders and gave more people hope for living. Thank you,Ms. Curry.

Hi Brenda I related to everything you shared. I have been hiv and hep C positive for 21 years. There was a women hiv positive group I attended that helped to live with these viruses. As a result I am able to share my hiv status with others to help them. Continue on soldier in this army I will pray your strength in the Lord.

I am one of these ladies, over fifty, relating is easy for me. My long term goal is to take care of myself. I have taken care of children, spouse, family and jobs. Now it is time for me! I love myself and it shows! Copasetic Women you are what's happening today. There are a lot of use out here and would like to know more about getting together with a group like yours. Some older women, still have low self esteem, and are afraid to step out into the light. We need to reach out a caring hand.
