I'm Not Average: Scott

Condition:
HIV


Age:
49


Location:
San Diego, CA


Even after serving in the United States Air Force, Scott wasn’t prepared for the toughest job of his life: battling his diagnosis with HIV. #ImNotAverage


With a skyrocketing viral load and a plummeting T-cell count, he says, “I knew I would die without treatment.”

More than ten years after his diagnosis – and after working hard with a number of innovative medicines – Scott and his treatment regime have throttled the virus down to undetectable levels, and his healthy cell count continues to climb. As for his career as a health care advocate – that’s back on track, too. “I’m back to leading a life that looks very similar to the one I lived prior to being diagnosed,” he says today.
