Writer's Block: AIDS Walk

Do you think there will be a cure for AIDS in your lifetime? Why or why not?

Well, a sort of cure has been found. It's just a difficult cure to administer. But there has been a person that has, as far as the scientists can tell, been cured of AIDS. He was being given a bone marrow transplant due to cancer, and they managed to find a matching donor who had the genetic resistance to the AIDS virus. They did the transplant, and the patient has had undetectable levels for several years without his anti-viral meds.

Now, we just have to figure out how to make that happen for everyone.
