From the creators of Face Off HIV, this is the story of Connie Statz and her experience of how living with HIV changed her life. After discovering her disease, Connie knew that this was a moment to continue living and to create her own voice. Connie is the founder of Camp Benedict, a camp where people living with HIV/AIDs can come together for a week every year. Face Off HIV members Richard Louprasong and Keith Pederson take a journey into the experience of Camp Benedict.
