“After losing the love of my life to AIDS, I had no one to talk to, no friends or family to turn to. I went into a deep depression. You know, I’ve always heard you can die from a broken heart, and I almost did. But then CARES stepped in and wouldn’t allow it. I had three Case Managers who literally ganged up on me with love. They would not give up on me.  They allowed me to weep, to talk, to grieve.  Their compassion gave me my life back.”
