When Nicole Price was 25 years old, life was not going the way she had planned. She was addicted to meth, she had a hard time holding down a job and then a test revealed she was HIV positive.
“I was afraid of dying. I was afraid of never being able to have kids, of never being able to get married. My family not loving me anymore. It was a really scary time,” remembers Price.
Price found a supportive community in Babes Network, based out of the downtown Seattle YWCA. Babes is a non-profit that specifically serves women living with HIV.
In this story, hear how Price journeyed from a solitary place of fear, to turning her life around and leading an organization that empowers hundreds of HIV positive women living in King County.
