EMPOWERMENT
Friday - 1:30PM

Teresa is the proud mother of Marteniz, a young gay man who is living with HIV.  When her then 18-year-old son told her he was positive, she admits she did not know much about HIV As a mother, her first concern was for her son.  Today, as a Greater Than AIDS ambassador, Teresa is an inspiring example of the power of love AND knowledge in the face of this disease.
