Thirty-six-year old Samantha Glenn contracted HIV four years ago after having unprotected sex with her boyfriend. Glenn’s four children were the only ones who knew her status—until now.
“To this day, no one in my family knows. I kept it to myself. I told them I had cancer cells in my uterus,” Glenn said. “Lack of education and ignorance within my family prevented me from telling them the truth. This was easier for them to accept, but it’s like I’m leading a double life.”
