Sonya Eskridge is a writer from Maryland, who started her news career in radio at the age of 17. After graduating from Virginia Tech, she went on to write for a national publication where she was able to mold her personal voice. Always looking for ways to inform on important issues--or share her love of nerdy and girly things—Sonya thoroughly enjoys writing about a wide range of subjects.
As another celebrity with HIV, Magic took the opportunity to reach out and show his support. “I wish @CharlieSheen and his family the best. With the advancement in treatments and medicine he can fight this disease and live a long life,” Magic tweeted.
The NBA star then called on Charlie to help him fight the virus, stating, “In @CharlieSheen breaking his silence, I hope he joins me in educating the world about HIV/AIDs.”
Charlie hasn’t responded to the invite just yet, but we’re sure there’s plenty of work he can do with the Magic Johnson Foundation. The organization has been combating HIV and working with millions since the early ’90s. Another high-profile ambassador could amplify the organization’s message even further.
