Cindy White and Eric Ernsberger

Cindy White talks with her friend Eric Ernsberger (right) about her HIV positive diagnosis, which came shortly after she met her life partner, Dan Driggers. Eventually Dan was also diagnosed HIV positive, telling Cindy not to feel guilty about it, but as Cindy notes, “That’s hard to take when you’re the one who has dealt out the disease.”
