The Life Group LA assists individuals with the HIV infection by providing support and educational programs.
The infection of the HIV virus has caused a worldwide epidemic for over 30 years, leaving millions without proper HIV care to lose their lives. For some individuals living with this infection, HIV can continue to worsen over time creating a more advanced disease—AIDS. With these dangerous possibilities looming in the future, it is crucial for individuals with HIV/AIDS to be informed on the best choices regarding their health care. For this purpose, The Life Group LA was formed to educate individuals with HIV/AIDS and lead them to the best resources and care.
Since The Life Group LA’s beginning, it has benefited many affected by HIV/AIDS and has served as a support system to individuals during challenging times. On July 9, 2016, The Life Group LA will continue to support those with HIV/AIDS by holding their eleventh annual Saddle Up LA fundraiser. This fundraiser experience allows for friends and family to come together and enjoy an afternoon horseback ride followed by a festive BBQ with live entertainment, country dancing, and a silent auction that will support those with HIV infection. doTERRA was happy to contribute to The Life Group LA and donated to the Saddle Up LA fundraiser to help support the organization’s cause.
The proceeds of this fundraiser event are used to bring The Life Group LA’s POZ Life Weekend Seminar to HIV/AIDS audiences across the nation. The POZ Life Weekend Seminar is an opportunity for people affected by HIV/AIDS to receive the education and support needed to live long and healthy lives and break free from the fears associated with HIV infection. During this weekend, participants hear from presenters and participate in workshops that address sensitive and crucial topics, including insurance and public benefits, stress management, women and HIV, medication adherence, and nutrition. The seminar is designed to be highly interactive and cater to the needs of the participants.
In addition to the POZ Life Weekend Seminar, The Life Group LA provides medical forums, emotional support groups, and a judgement-free environment where trained support group facilitators listen to individuals in confidentiality. With the support of donors like doTERRA and participants from the Saddle Up LA fundraiser, The Life Group LA is able to expand these programs and influence, educate, and instruct individuals on how to avoid the dangers of the HIV infection and live long and healthy lives.
