Teen Still Recovering After Being Infected With HIV By Father Avoiding Child Support
Teen Recovering From AIDS After Being Infected By Father To Avoid Child Support Payments
Brryan Jackson is living on borrowed time.
The 19-year-old from St Louis, Missouri's father, Brian Stewart, purposefully infected him with AIDS in murderous attempt to get out of child support payments, in 1992 when he was 11-months-old.
Four years later Brryan was given just five months to live.
The UK Daily Mail reports that Bryan's father, a blood transfusion specialist, was convicted of first-degree assault in 1998 and received a life sentence.
Unfortunately for Brryan he was reduced to a life of constant medication and worried anticipation.
“We live daily with the realization that he will die of this disease or the complications that are related to this,” says Mary, Brryan's mother.
Things have changed for the teen.
According to Stewart, his muscles are actually building instead of breaking down and scans have been unable to detect the virus in his blood for two straight years now.
“It's pretty remarkable. I went from full blown AIDS, on my death bed, given five months to live, and here I am 19 years old,” he tells The Mail. “My doctors are amazed.”
