Legit.ng previously reported that Twitter user Doreen Moraa was celebrating 20 years of living with HIV and wanted to share her story with Kenyans online.
Doreen posted a touching message while also sharing pictures of her as a young innocent girl who, according to doctors, was never to see past her 12th birthday.
She said doctors gave her four years to live when she was as young as eight, but went on to surpass that and mark 20 years living with the virus.
