prince hiv aids

The world continues to mourn megastar Prince Rogers Nelson who died at age 57 in an elevator at his 66,000 sq ft Paisley Park residence near Minneapolis last Thursday.

Insiders confirm the pop icon was diagnosed with “full blown AIDS” in the months before he died.

Staff at a Walgreens near the singer’s home said he was picking up medications used to treat HIV patients the day before he died.

A well-connected music industry source told Sandrarose.com Prince committed suicide inside the elevator.

The pop superstar raised awareness of Aids in a 1998 campaign, after he was diagnosed with the virus that causes AIDS.

The bisexual singer reportedly practiced unsafe sex during all-night orgies with men and women in the 1980s and 1990s. But the source said he turned against the homosexual lifestyle and became a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses after he was diagnosed with HIV.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) breaks down the body’s immune system and prevents the body from fighting off bacteria, virus, fungus, and parasites.

Your immune system is comprised of antibodies and white blood cells (leukocytes) that act as bodyguards against invading organisms. The HIV virus enters white blood cells (WBC) and uses the WBC’s DNA to make copies of itself, destroying the WBC in the process.

The immune system is weakened when there are scant few WBCs left to put up a fight against the HIV virus.

Opportunistic Infections

Full blown AIDS occurs when the HIV virus load is high and opportunistic infections come along to take advantage of the weakened immune system.

Full blown AIDS is diagnosed when a patient presents with one or more of the classic opportunistic infections that are specific to AIDS. These infections usually don’t affect non-HIV individuals.

The opportunistic infections include:

(this list is not complete)

  • Candidiasis Oral Thrush (yeast infection) of the lungs, mouth or throat (specific to AIDS)
  • Cryptococcosis – fungal infection of the brain (specific to AIDS
  • Cytomegalovirus – CMV retinitis) herpes infection of the eyes
  • Histoplasmosis – fungal infection of the lungs (specific to AIDS)
  • Kaposi’s sarcomav – very rare type of cancer (specific to AIDS)
  • Mycobacterium avium complex – rare bacterial infection (specific to AIDS)
  • Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia – rare lung infection (specific to AIDS)
  • Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (rare disease specific to AIDS)
  • Salmonella septicemia, recurrent (specific to AIDS if it’s recurrent)
  • Toxoplasmosis – parasitic infection of the brain (specific to AIDS)
  • Wasting syndrome – HIV-associated loss of muscle mass and fat

      They don’t care. They call your name out loud and announce your prescription medicine in front of other customers.

    • i troll it like i see it

      I agree, if this if true they need to be fired.

    • Jusstlookn

      Yeah, this model is not working

    • ?E?E?M?A

      Oh well! People need to know. If they tell the truth on that autopsy report it’s going to come out anyway.

    • iscream

      First time I’ve seen a person dying with full blown AIDS able to walk around AND perform days before. Oh but right he committed suicide even though despite him being a Witness that’s highly unlikely.

      Also, first time I’ve heard that you can walk into Walgreens and buy HIV meds over the counter.

      Happy Friday.

    • Angela

      You’re going to get banned???

    • ?E?E?M?A

      Why should they be fired? Prince is not a private citizen. He belongs to the public.

    • Finding Forever…

      What I trip on is the sign “stand back at xyz point for privacy”…do we go deaf at this point, too? I can CLEARLY hear what was prescribed & how often to take, LOL…

      Back to #Views

    • Oh Tommie

      I was wondering how he kept it hush for so long if this is true…I don’t recall rumors about him having HIV/AIDS until now. We even heard the rumors and got the scoop on Charlie Sheen before he came out publicly with his sheit.

    • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

      I really digging it.

    • Angela

      No they dont..

    • Miany

      How does one belong to the public? Smh..you folk are crazy.

    • ?E?E?M?A

      Every part of his life is public. He’s a celebrity.

    • abby-o

      By people Sandaling this man and assuming how he died…how does that benefit u? Will it make u sleep better at night knowing how Prince died? Well sweetie u need a life ..?

    • Miany

      What they’re saying makes no sense. How was he praying it away but still at walgreens getting prescriptions filled.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Lmao! People want to hear your prescription at any distance. ??

    • iWasteTime

      I am too! I’m so full!
      I never like his colabs with Rhi, I hate Take Care but Work and Too Good!!

    • THE OLDER SISTAH

      If he did die from AIDS does this invalidate all that he has done for others? In the REAL world, good people contract and unfortunately, sometimes die from AIDS too. if true, I am not saying that it should not be reported, I just wish it wasn’t being used by the news media to overshadow what he has accomplished and to take away from his extraordinary talent.

    • Wayup!

      Devil is a LIAR!!!!??

    • sunni_daze

      I’m not buying suicide they said he was active in his religion and that would be sinning against Jehova. People just need something to say, there’s always a close “source”

      “Also, first time I’ve heard that you can walk into Walgreens and buy HIV meds over the counter.”
      —————–

      You’ve never called in a prescription and went to pick it up?

      Also, people can walk around with full blown AIDS. Full blown AIDS simply means they are diagnosed with an infection that is specific to AIDS. Did you read the post?

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Coroners don’t look for HIV during autopsy. They look at the condition of the internal organs to determine the cause of death (enlarged heart, cancer, etc.)

      Didn’t know so many infections and illnesses were associated with HIV and AIDS. It’s scary that your immune system breaks down so completely. Where in the world did this disease come from. I grew up in the sixties and this was just unheard of. Sometimes I wonder if these diseases are man-made.

    • iWasteTime

      But I didn’t know it was YOU!!! lololol!

    • Ebony Starr

      Why would he be picking up medication for AIDS if he was planning his suicide for the next day? !!!

    • Anna Maria

      Tell it! It bothers me that people are spending more time speculating (no, announcing) why he died than how he lived.

    • shaybytheway

      Doesn’t matter. When medical professionals get HIPAA certified, it does not specify who deserves protection. It’s simply afforded to everyone. And this person or people could face jail time for breaking it.

    • stav

      How was he picking up HIV medication , when a report a couple of days ago stated he had stopped taking his medication , which is how he got full blown AIDS! Believe nothing in the media, the media are the biggest liars and manipulators there are! Since his death we have heard at least 5 different stories, obviously someone or numerous people do not want the truth to be found out.

    • wonderwoman

      I could care less how he died. I just pray he rest in peace.

    • MookieFly

      May he rest in peace. I do find it interesting that some are so fickle about this particular celebrity’s death while if it was anyone else, say Whitney or Michael, people were more keen/open to find out what happened. Is it because he may have passed away from something they weren’t expecting? Or is it too soon to pull out the magnifying glass? Pondering thoughts…

    • just being me

      I am still not buying this story even with your money !!!!!!!!!!!

WILL BE DONE, LITERALLY cause that’s CRAZY (of course legal) that EVVVERYBODY got their cups & ain’t chipped in…Prince teaching lessons in the afterlife beyond just Kiss & Purple Rain!

    • Da Puppet Mistress

      Used my mask too. Library man better not have taken a video or a picture.

    • Buttercup

      I think it’s the way he lived his life. He was private and only shared what he wanted us to know. If he didn’t share it with us while he was living, then folks shouldn’t pry now that he’s gone.

      I read it was prince but due to legal reasons they “say” its really based off a glam rocker. I think prince was above sliding down banisters for a check at that point in his career. So dr pepper had to make due??

      If his family was any good they would be readying them lawsuits!!!

    • MookieFly

      True, but also debatable. Is it private because he wanted to live a quiet life or private because he didn’t want any of his other life to get out? Prince wasnt always so private. The man lived wild and free for a good min.

      Is it private because he wanted to live a quiet life or private because he didn’t want any of his other life to get out?

    • softness1

      This whole AIDS thing makes no sense. He just performed the weekend before and also he didn’t live like he was dying. If you’re diagnosed with an illness and has such a huge wealth, wouldn’t you make a will just in case?? I mean if you have his kind of wealth you’d have a will, but especially if you’re sick..

    • Dakota H

      It doesn’t matter if he is a celebrity or not they had no right telling his personal info. Do you want all your personal business out in the open to everyone???

      The Walgreen employees trying to be leeches to sell their stories but they shouldn’t be able to talk the judge or somebody with upper higher power needs to seal all that and if somebody talk they should be sued.

      They can be sued and I doubt that it is true or they are in BIG TROUBLE!

    • Sircaput

      I don’t think you are reporting news, like any other media outlet, you are report a conspiracy theory, fist people to break this story was the Enquire. News without know facts is not news it’s a theory and based on how you report it people can believe it just because he or she read it here. You use your site to influence others to your way of thinking. The last thing I would like to remember about Prince is the albums, the music, the movies and the passion he had for art not it he had HIV/AIDS, the last thing I would like to remember about Cosby is the shows and the movies not if he raped those women and I’m sure he didn’t but the media be out to destroy it also destroys my memory of the individual. Sandra, I’m not sure what have been done to you in your life and why you seek to destroy but I wish you would choose other ways to report rather than try to destroy..Not sure why I keep coming to this site, whatever you are doing must be working cause we show up to see what crazy off the wall topic is being talked about.

      So much stigma is still associated with HIV/AIDS.

    • Buttercup

      It’s sad when you think about it. Folks are so unhappy with themselves and needy for attention that they have to seek the attention of strangers in a box for attention. I mean..all these homeless shelters that could use some help, all these soup kitchens that always need an extra set of hands, all these animal shelters that need folks to play with the cats and dogs- and folks come to a box. Sad.

      From what we read & all the “hoe tales”…it seems that ALOT of entertainers, athletes etc…are walking around with all manner of STD’s. Which boggles the mind as to why folks (men and women) still have unprotected sex at the drop of a hat?

    • Luvn_it

      Sandra didn’t you report in a previous story that he refused medical treatment. I noticed both times the Enquirer was used they seem to be changing their story everyday by pieces. I learned to take anything they write with a grain of salt.

    • product of 79

      GOD called him home and he did it at his time I’m not for the BS…? ? ??

    • Luvn_it

      They did MJ and Whitney the same way. A black entertainer can’t die without there being some type of conspiracy behind it.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You’re right; the Enquirer did quote an insider who said he refused to take his HIV medication. But he did pick up AIDS medication at Walgreens. Maybe he changed his mind in the days leading up to his death?

      Let’s say if this true ! How does it affect thier life & people don’t care how he died or what he did or didn’t do.

      People care about how he lived his life & it’s no big secret about Prince life style he was a sexy mudha _____

      Lawt! I remember listening to his music not understanding the words but luved the beat… Or when apolonia sang straight shooter….. Nasty gurl!!

Listen, Adele BEEN callin’ from the OTHER SIIIIDDDEEE. You coulda picked up and said “hello” back and tell her you’re sorry for everything. But Prince? Why Prince? I got a ex and some trolls in this very garden that are ripe for plucking. Why Prince?!! You coulda took Sallie Mae and Stacie Dash as they have NEVER been favored around these parts. Why Prince, Lawd? WHHHHYYYY???

      What does it really matter if he died from AIDS or not? It doesnt change our lives one bit. Let the man rest in peace already! Whether he killed himself, OD’d, had a heart attack, died of AIDS, or died of natural causes should not matter. All that matters is he was right with the most high and will live in heaven for eternity. People can be so petty and nosy its disgusting. I personally think he was murdered/ sacrificed, but even that doesnt matter cause really if he was murdered what is anyone going to do about it? Nothing. So let it go man geez.

    • Hmmm~?

      You can, and most likely will still die from AIDS even if you take your medication as prescribed. AIDS isn’t fully treatable. Also, Magic and Charlie Sheen have HIV, not AIDS. There’s an important difference between the two.

    • mela.reign77

      Okay so let’s just say he did have Aids, he was at Walgreens picking up medication, now what? Are we going to use that to promote more awareness in the community? Are we going to use that help someone who’s ashamed to tell people their status out of fear of being ostracized, what now? I don’t know him but I don’t believe that this man killed himself. It’s something very fishy going on the entertainment industry and has been for a very long time. Not only with singers but actors as well, that’s just my theory. But I just don’t believe that everybody is around here killing them selves. Sure we don’t know what a person is going through, but I promise you there is a pattern when a person Is suicidal and or depressed. I’m just saying we have to stop allowing the media and whoever to distract us from the truth. They do it all of the time, and they’re doing it now. The National Enquirer is a joke they’re pretty much like Media Takeout.com to me. I don’t trust anything they publish, because most of the time it’s fabricated. No one knows what he was picking up at Walgreens but him, and the pharmacist everything else is mere speculation.

      Some of the comments in this post ?

    • LithiumHaitianFlower

      They must likely sell the info for a decent good penny anonymously. I expect the med script to ‘leak’ very soon. It’s gross. His family need to beat them to it by releasing a press conference as well as raising awareness. The 1998 awareness show he did wasn’t the only one. The man suffered quietly. I think he also become celibate after his diagnosis too. He even talked openly to Rolling Stone about his celibacy. This shouldn’t affect his legacy. He sang candidly about his younger wild years of promiscuity. He was a musical genius.

    • Frances Browb

      Why is this man name being disrespected in such away. Media is a cool piece of work…..SMDH

      I hate that everyone are mostly like the Enquirer and the Star even the Sun just printing stuff willy nilly without facts. It don’t matter if that’s what took him out its just oh so disrespectful of someone who was much more than the way he died smh

    • Amel

      None of this has been confirmed. Why would he commits suicide in an elevator? Most people diagnosed with HIV, now have life spans the same or close to someone without HIV. Price would have access to the best medical care. Story doesn’t make sense. Look at Magic Johnson…

    • Amel

      What? because he was singer, they have the right to release personal medical info? You sound dumb.

    • Da Puppet Mistress

      I said no comment to you, bc your comment about an anus and rectum in an HIV/AIDS post in 2016 is misinformation. As if it cant be transmitted vaginally.

      Well he’s cremated so we’ll never really know & his legacy lives on.

    • Tea???

      I read somewhere else that he stopped taking his medication because he believed he had been healed through the church. It’s a sad situation but they should let the man rest

    • ?Patty Kakes?

      I don’t wanna believe it, but I kind’a think it’s true. He looked real thin and weak in his last days

      Please stop talking you sound like a fool.

    • Dakota H

      You still missed the point I was trying to make. Nobody has a right to discuss anybody personal Health or business. You can be a regular anybody in the world but that still doesn’t give anyone a point to tell sh** regardless unless you give the permission.

    • Miany

      His job was public…the rest obviously was not. Hence the fact no one outside of his circle even remotely knew his business until after he died.

    • Miany

      Yea…but getting medicine makes no sense if he was solely treating it with prayer.

    • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

      Seriously

    • Dakota H

      We all wasting our time trying to make a point to Beema. Prince could have been a regular guy in the world but that still don’t give them no damn right to be telling sh**. Now these Walgreens employees got me all turned up to the max they need their a** fired, sued, and prosecuted.

    • Chaseboogie The Prince

      And never allowed to work in that field or any other similar field again.

    • Satin Panther

      Now my eyes are wide open to the bull. They couldn’t let Prince go without tarnishing his legacy. You see they didn’t pry into David Bowie like that and their career was quite similar.

    • Tanya

      Smh…this man is dead and people have nothing better to do is create these horrible stories. He lived his life the way he wanted and it’s no ones business what he did… Rest well sweet Prince.

    • IAmLawlessBrooks

      hmmmm

    • Mrs. ??????????

      If Prince did have full blown AIDS, he looked very good for a man at deaths door. There is footage of him riding his bike and performing in the days leading up to untimely death. My cousin ( a female) died from AIDS when I was 19 years old and let me tell you in the months leading up to her death, you could tell she was sick. She lost weight, had dark marks on her face was very sick with what seemed to be a cold at the time. I’ve seen AIDS kill and IMO Prince didn’t look like someone suffering from that fatal disease. Let that man RIP.

    • ?E?E?M?A

      So you like having discussions with fools?

    • Mrs. ??????????

      That’s the same thing I was thinking.

    • Genia W-m

      Like most superstars, he was a talented man with his demons. Gaining fame so young. I read an old article from the ’90s where he controlled his first wife’s food, laid out her clothes and controlled her. The nanny and her sister he hired for the baby spoke out, saying they would sneak Mayte out for food because she wasn’t getting enough nutrients. She lost the second baby which journals say may come from a protein deficiency.

    • Genia W-m

      He was on the HIV cocktails for years though so the disease manifested itself internally and not just from a physical appearance. He wasn’t a big man to begin with but was down to 80 lbs. He was wasting. His face, while still handsome, looked a little gaunt but not skeletal to me even though people said he looked well.
      Something was going on mentally with him I believe because if he truly thought God was going to cure him then why was he preparing to die? He might’ve gone into a depression with some aspects of his life. Loneliness is a huge factor for famous people like him. MJ told Oprah he was so lonely he would talk to the mannequins in his house.

    • Mrs. ??????????

      My cousin was on the same anti-viral drugs until she got a some really but news that I wont share on the internet. It sent her into a deep depression and she ran away from everyone and everything. She was missing for about a week before we found her but by then it was too late. She had stopped taking her meds and died in the hospital almost 2 weeks later. I just wont believe Prince had AIDS until someone in his family says so.

    • THE Queen

      These news papers are such devils, HOW was Prince gay, not one person ever came out and outted him ,he was always seen with women, if he was gay I’m sure SOME loose booty dude would have spoken up by now. CUT IT OUT MEDIA, i don’t care why he died, I’m just sad he is gone, such a wonderful musician and great entertainer.

    • THE Queen

      ALL DAY, BUNCH OF LYING DEVILS

    • Connie

      I do believe Prince had AIDS, however I do not believe he committed suicide. If anything, accidental overdose, but not suicide. Pain pills for hip, AIDS related pains, etc. Self medicating and over medicating. I wish all these “inside sources” would stop spinning lies. Prince was a private person, a true Cultural Icon, a legend. Dearly Beloved, We are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” -Prince RIP

      Prince didn’t have AIDS.

      And he wouldn’t be mobile if he was in a condition to die a day later. He would be in a sick bed. You ever seen an AIDS patient on the brink of death?

    • Li

      Sometimes you’re so desperate for pain relief and a cure for an illness you “accidentally overdose” mixing a lot of drugs, but deep down inside know you’re doomed.

    • Li

      But HE was an older man when he married Mayte, she was 20 and he was double her age. They lived with her mother in his house, so why didn’t the mom intervene? Or was she dependent on Prince’s money?
      I can believe that he was a control freak. Just like with his music.

    • Li

      His organs were tested. THEY know what was wrong with him.

      Additionally Prince was rather private with his personal life and while people may speculate on his partners, his pimp hand was strong, and I can’t recall any lovers, woman(or man) telling his bedroom business in the media. We don’t need to know his HIV status or bedroom antics now that he is gone. Private then, private now. Just let the music play.

    • Li

      This makes me sad and mad. Prince worked doubly hard for what He earned and his family who didn’t contribute anything is getting his wealth. It makes me sad that he was in such pain and disease that he basically gave up on life. It makes me sad that his privacy which he guarded is now being open for the world to see, all the warts.

      It makes me wonder who else out there who was whoring around in the 1990s is HIV infected and we don’t know about? I’m sure all his wives and lovers are now rushing to get tested. I hope he told them about it so they could get tested.

      So young still. So tragic.

      AIDS is not something to throw around like this— without any facts. People are so reckless nowadays.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      Who knows? I’ll say again he died from something major. Flu like symptoms lasting 2-3 weeks that had this man out of commission??? Is it my business? No. You can’t tell me this rich guy didn’t frequent doctors and get check ups. His last words to that Atlanta crowd sums all this up and affirms Prince knew the end was near.

      A 57 year old doesn’t just one day die. I had a child hood friend’s older sister die in her sleep, 51. The coroner still had to get to the root of her dying. There were contributing factors and Prince’s situation is no different. Take away the emotions and the celebrity.

      Did we all, in the end, not have to accept that MJ really was strung out on pain killers and it got worse? No one ever said he deserved his outcome. But when you stick to facts, he needed more and more powerful drugs to live, ironically.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      Did you see his toothless brother on tv talking about he loved his brother? I LOL. They hadn’t spoken to each other in over 15 years. Yeah, yeah, yeah. U loved him. I can’t even get mad that his siblings will end up with millions of dollars each and the rights to his estate, more millions. Prince had no kids, no will, etc. You truly can not take it with you.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      People don’t understand mostly, but even 3800SF is HUGE. If you kick in the basement size, it’s even more. But yeah, 55 or 66,000 SF is a lot.

      I remember first seeing a post years ago saying it was his “house” and I thought it was a lie cuz it’s literally right off the hwy and in your face. I thought a recluse or someone so private would have fortress on hundreds of acres sitting way off and private. Behind gates, of course.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      Sorry about your cousin. My aunt stopped taking her AIDS meds also because it made her loopy and hallucinate. She had to sleep sitting up because of constant nose bleeds. Her last day alive, she called my uncle’s wife and her preacher to her home.

      The ambulance took her away, but there were many bloody towels and rags about her bedroom that day. She passed New Years day 2009. Yes, most of us knew she stopped taking the meds.

Maybe thats why he didn’t care about money because it was given to so many people. Oh well. There’s a lot of musical material to use for his life. I hope they don’t make a Lifetime or Oxygen movie.

      My name is Richter Huyen, My husband’s name is Gheorghe. We were very happy till August 2015. He came to Miami, for a business trip in September. After coming here he has fallen in relationship with a girl (Trevino ). He has lied to the girl about me and he break up the relationship with me. I have never seen him behave rudely in the last 15 years, we are married for 7.5 yrs now. He says me, I have had enough in the marriage life. I cannot be in a family life after this, he says he doesn’t love me anymore . He has place only for the new girl and he was asking me to return to GERMANY. And I was confused because I don’t know what to do until one fateful day on Facebook I saw a testimony of how Solution Prophet Abulu has prayed for a woman by name JESSICA to get her lovely husband back after 9 years of divorce. So I decided to contact the man of God for a trial as well and he prayed for me and told me what to do and I did expertly what he instructed me to do and today I’m a living testimony because my husband is fully back to me and even love me the more, and i’m say a big thank you to master JESUS for using the Prophet to restore my home and my advice to Everyone at there who may be facing one situation to another should contact the man of God on Facebook by his name SolutionProphet Abulu or contact his email; solutiongrand@gmail.com for your miracle today and his personal phone number +2347081686253.

And he is not the only Black celebrity to have died of this… Silence = Death.

      Uuuuuuuum I’m not very surprise of this story but it do seems a little obvious about the part of prince being bisexual. I never herd of prince being bisexual since the 80s,90s and today. Just because when somebody have a terminal illness related to aids always got to be bisexual or gay. Its seems to me they are being jugemental about this man life style and its just shame full and wrong bottom line. Prince lived his life the way he wanted back in the days and I think people should keep that part out of the medias eye.

    • Irena Jankowska

      These same God sent Man called Dr. Ihionkhan Molan i talked about few years back has done it again, viewers If you can recall,this was the same great man that helped me with my problems concerning marriage.I never believed in spells or any herbalist,not until i contacted this great man.I am being the C.E.O Korean Air-flight.I have been on Drugs since 2007,I was tested HIV Positive.Due to some Family Issues, I had misunderstanding with my Husband,and we went separate ways.But as i speak I am now HIV negative, and also my darling husband is back with me and we are very happy again.That has been my previous Testimony cause i had no much time to elaborate on issues,Though a great work but still kind of skeptical of his powers. But this Time Dr.Ihionkhan Molan has cleared my doubt and given me a reason to write more and more, I know there will be many unbelievers who wont believe my story, but i do not care about believing or not who need to know what is right, true, wrong, and bad should listen to the heart because only your heart can tell what is good and what is not right. After the first Healing and cleansing he did for me, preparing Herbal Medicine and doing a Healing Spell on me and sending the Herbal medicine that is being used to cure HIV/AIDS. I can boastfully say i am Cured and healed because i received the shipment that was being containing Herbal Medicine to Cure me from the terrible and deadly Virus that i was infected with called HIV.I have done my final test with my doctor and my results has appeared to be HIV Negative, right now my results are with my husband, though i was kind of skeptical when he said i should go for test after i have finished consuming the Herbal medicine sent to me, and within few weeks of consuming it, he called and told me to go for a test again and i did as instructed, believe me, after my result i was dumbfounded and now i am being living happily and out of fears. I also do want to say Dr. Ihionkhan Molan was also the helper that Helped me with a love spell which brought back my darling Husband Josh Jankowska back to me,after some little misunderstanding we had years back.And we became one happy family again.Just last month being first Monday morning of the month, my Son was confirmed Positive, being my only son,i quickly recommend the best doctor to him,and drugs was prescribed to him,it was a Shock to me, and that made me confused not even remembering this man that helped me with mine.If you have ever been in such situation you will know what I’m talking about. On Wednesday the day,i remembered Dr. Ihionkhan Molan i didn’t hesitate to contact him,which he responded speedily.I was surprised same procedure was carried out,like requesting information, Purchasing of required Herbal materials and then he proceed further.Just last week i got a call from him after my son has consumed the medicine he sent, he called and was telling me he is done with my son’s final cleansing and that he should go for a check up or a test at the hospital. I was happy and Called my son Mack to go for a checkup again,and he told me the result is Negative, I never doubted because i knew it was good to be true so i said to him son Come on what are you waiting for is a House Party today…..I am so Amazed at this man, I still don’t know how much to thank him.he is great and powerful, Viewers reading these, what are you waiting for?? Hit him up with your problems with dr.hiv.aids.curer@gmail.com or better still his mobile phone number +233231791514.
      Thanks to all and God bless who reads my story and rejoice with me.

      I was been suffering hardshiply from HIV/AIDS since 9yrs now, and i happen to have 2 kids for my husband, and now we cannot proceed to have another kids all because of my disease and now i have do all what a human like i and my husband can do just to get my disease healed, i have went to several places to seek for help not even one person could ever help, until i melt a comment on the daily news paper that was commented by Miss Marilyn about how this powerful traditional doctor help her get cured of the disease (HIV-AIDS) ” my fellow beloved” i firstly taugh having a help from a spiritual traditional healer was a wrong idea, but i think of these, will i continue to stress on these disease all day when i have someone to help me save my life?” so i gather all my faiths and put in all interest to contact him through his Email address at drehimarespelltemple@gmail.com , so after i have mailed him of helping get my disease cured, i respond to me fast as possible that i should not be afraid, that he is a truthful and powerful doctor which i firstly claimed him to be. So after all set has been done, he promise me that i will be healed but on a condition that i provide him some items and obeyed all his oracle said. I did all by accepting his oracolous fact and only to see that the following week Dr Ehimare mail me on my mail box that my work is successfully done with his powers, i was first shocked and later arrise to be the happiest woman on earth after i have concluded my final test on the hospital by my doctor that i am now HIV- Negative.

      and he perform the necessary thing and he told me that after two
      weeks I should go for a test. Which I did, when the doctor told me
