You can survive and thrive with HIV. Many others do. Known as “Da Pirate,” or “One Tough Pirate,” Bob Bowers has survived and thrived with HIV and AIDS for over 25 years. In 2005, He founded HIVictorious, Inc. Lecturing as an HIV positive person, Bowers speaks from a first-hand about importance of offering a face to the disease in order to reduce the stigma of AIDS. He is outspoken about the struggles he has had in his life, and the personal choices he made before he was infected. In his public presentations, he shows how HIV disease has assisted him in making better choices and in appreciating the very day-to-day life s simple beauty. “For everything negative I can say about HIV, I can also find something positive to say. It’s all about choices and playing the hand you are dealt.” (

Bob, and other People living with HIV and AIDS, can celebrate productive and happy lives with treatment and proper care. The following indicate some of the symptoms of HIV:
