Meet Edwin Brandon
“It’s not just me and my doctor involved with my care, but also Ryan White and my support system. It’s like a puzzle — when all those pieces are put together, I can stay alive and be a productive member of society.”
In 2011, an estimated 12,336 Tennessee residents received services through Ryan White. Edwin Brandon is one of those Tennesseans. He considers himself a long-term survivor, having lived with HIV for 31 years. Living 140 miles round-trip from his primary care physician, Edwin relies on the Ryan White transportation assistance to get him to the life-saving care he needs.
