Melina (25) and her daughter, Emily (9).
Initially when Melina learned that she was HIV-positive she didn't believe it. She neglected to get care and her health declined. On the hospital bed when Melina's condition was critical, she gave directions to Emily, who was just 5 years old at the time, how to get home using public transportation just in case she didn't make it. However, Melina made full recovery and is currently on Antiretroviral Therapy (ART).
