Charlie Sheen vows to cure HIV
Actor Charlie Sheen has spoken out at about his HIV-positive diagnosis in a recent interview, promising to find a cure for the disease.
“I’m really clear, really good, positively focused. It was such a tremendous weight lifted off my shoulders when I made the announcement,” Sheen said in an interview with The National Enquirer.
“I realized afterwards, I wish I had possibly done it sooner. As we’ll discuss, there were a lot of different elements in the mix that prevented me from doing that.”
The Anger Management star revealed that the disease never kept him down, and that he’s working hard to find a cure.
“It was shortly afterwards — I think it was the second day — I said to my mom, ‘This disease picked the wrong guy.’ If anybody can fight this thing and discover a cure, it’s me. I will exhaust every resource available to me. I will sit with every expert. I will move forward until something’s revealed. If there’s a cure out there, I will find it and share it. You have my word.”
