An HIV organization is showing support for Gena Tew, the Instagram model who learned she had AIDS after 10 years without testing.

The 27-year-old revealed her decade-long battle with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) in a TikTok post.

In the video, Gena said she didn't know she had AIDS until a doctor told her after she complained of unexplained weight loss, nausea and vomiting, and extreme fatigue.

In an interview with TMZ, Gena said she's blind in one eye and she is unable to walk without assistance due to wasting syndrome, an AIDS-defined illness.

The model, who attended parties with Nick Cannon, Chris Brown, and Chief Keef, said she informed her sex partners about her diagnosis and they all tested negative.

She refused to name them to protect their privacy, but she denied having sex with Brown or Cannon.

After reading about her situation, an HIV organization reached out to Gena on Twitter to offer support.

Let's Beehive is an Orlando-based organization that provides innovative HIV/AIDS health education workshops and prevention programs for children and adults to increase HIV awareness, according to their Twitter page.

Let's Beehive is an acronym that means "Let's Be HIV Educated." It is not associated with singer Beyonce's fanbase that calls themselves the "BeyHive."

The company tweeted:

"We are sending our love, thoughts, and prayers to @GenaTew. Thank you for your amazing courage and strength. You are not alone sis! Your story is increasing HIV awareness and helping more women and girls get tested and knowing their status. We are here for you [bee emoji] #letsbeehive [heart emoji]."

In a follow-up tweet, they wrote: "We love you @GenaTew. Don't let them #breakyoursoul. We are here for you! #letsbeehive."

The tweet referenced Beyonce's new single "Break My Soul" off her new album, Renaissance.

A GoFundMe account has raised over $10,000 for Gena's medical bills and to help her move closer to her late sister's family.

An Instagram model's battle with AIDS leaves Chris Brown's fans worried about his health. Gena Tew, 27, shared a TikTok post detailing her battle with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Gena said she didn't know she had AIDS until a doctor informed her after she experienced unexplained weight loss, nausea and vomiting and extreme fatigue.

She tested positive for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and her weight loss was due to wasting syndrome - one of the so-called AIDS-defining illnesses. Her condition is so debilitating that she is unable to walk without assistance.

Gena believes she was infected with the HIV virus when she was 17. She doesn't know who infected her.

Gena was once a popular Instagram model who traveled in the same circles as hip-hop stars Chris Brown, Nick Cannon and KanYE West, among others.

According to public health officials, 1.2 million Americans are living with HIV or AIDS.

Doctors and coroners stopped listing AIDS as a cause of death in the mid-1990s due to the stigma. Which means the true number of AIDS-related deaths in America will probably never be known.

An Instagram model's battle with AIDS has shaken the hip-hop community. Gena Tew revealed her decade-long battle with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) in a TikTok post.

In the video, Gena said she didn't know she had AIDS until she went to a doctor after experiencing unexplained weight loss, nausea and vomiting, and extreme fatigue.

She said the doctor tested her for HIV and the test came back positive. She was diagnosed with AIDS - the advanced stage of HIV infection. Her white blood cell count was low and she had wasting syndrome, also referred to as an "AIDS-defining illness."

Gena, 27, said she weighs just 70 pounds and is unable to walk without assistance.

The NY-based IG model and reality TV personality was once a regular at private parties thrown by Chris Brown, Nick Cannon, among others.

She said she doesn't know who infected her with the HIV virus.

Health officials urge celebrities who may have been intimate with Gena in the past to get HIV tested.

More than 1.2 million people in the US are living with HIV. The cases are rising, particularly in San Francisco, NY and Atlanta, according to health officials.

Even though AIDS is the end stage of HIV infection, AIDS illnesses can be treated with HIV drugs, antivirals, antibiotics and antifungals.
