Meet Shawn Decker

I've blogged about Shawn Decker before, but now he's even cooler...because he's a published author! Shawn was diagnosed with HIV at age 11 as a result of a tainted blood infusion. He and his wife Gwenn travel the nation as educators about healthy relationships and safe sex. Shawn is also a certified hemophiliac, and the inspiration behind a program that I'm developing called "Thinbloods Fight Back!" (Self defense for hemos...a very tricky subject.) His first book titled "My Pet Virus" hits bookstores in September, and he and Gwenn are on the cover of POZ magazine this month. (POZ is an awesome mag for people living with HIV and AIDS) Read an exerpt from Shawn's book by clicking here. Even better, buy the book! You won't be disappointed.
