I've been buying Until There's a Cure bracelets for friends and family for years. UTAC is truly one of the founding organizations that began the whole bracelet as fundraiser movement. Even more importantly, their work helps save and preserve countless lives, spread awareness, and work in collaboration with other HIV/AIDS organizations, and improves the economic well-being of the bracelet makers. Until There's a Cure is a true innovator and team player organization. They get my vote -- and more than one if I had it!

I have seen first hand the generosity of Until There's A Cure
Until There's A Cure has given to so many organizations in the USA
Without an organization such as UTAC, many smaller organizations would have to close

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping others with advice, grant money and supportive listening

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure that retailers around the global would give UTAC a chance to sell their bracelets

Until There's A Cure is inspirational in every sense and down to the last staff member. They are tireless in their commitment to finding a cure for AIDS and educating the public to the epidemic that is becoming more global and more deadly. I have the honor of knowing the Executive Director, Ms Nora Hanna. She has been an avid supporter of this cause since one of her best friend's and my brother died in 1992. Best Regards, Jill Alfano

Understanding that this disease is still taking lives - and that the medications are falling short of handling the new strains that have appeared.

I love the bracelets because a lot of people comment on them and I get the chance to tell them about my brother. He was a hemophiliac who became HIV+ in the fall of 1983, was diagnosed with full-blown AIDS in November of 1985, and died January 5, 1988. He was 18 when he passed away. I wear one of my bracelets every day. And when I get the chance, I remind people to be cautious in their behaviors - just because you're doing things "right" doesn't mean your partner is.

I am an entrepreneur in Michigan. I contacted Until There's A Cure to become a partner with them. My email inquiry was responded to by Nora. Nora was helpful with giving me information. Nora made me feel good that I had made the right choice in partnering with the foundation. I decided to start my company after learning that a family member was diagnosed with having HIV. After the initial shock, talking to Nora made me feel better because I can learn a lot and give back by helping to spread the awareness of HIV/AIDS.

HIV/AIDS is a terrible disease that plagues the entire world and needs all the support it can get. I have been a member of UTAC for nearly 10 years and have seen the improvements they've made and the continued effort they make to eradicate this pandemic. This foundation has spurred me to base my career in an industry to continue the fight! Thanks UTAC and great job!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting others who wear the bracelet and finding encouragement that there are others out there who care as much about a cure as I do.

I am very pleased with the work that Until there is a cure does. It is clear that they work very hard to get information about HIV/Aids out to others. I personally have a borther who is HIV+. I wear my bracelets proudly to support him and am very happy to know that there is an organization committed to finding a cure and informing the public.
