Inspiring news in the case of a child in Mississippi who's now 2 1/2 and has been off AIDS medication for about a year with no signs of infection. Authorities have determined that the child is "functionally cured," meaning, the child is in long-term remission. Unfortunately, all traces of the virus haven't been completely eradicated.

In the complete story from Huff Post Healthy Living; you'll read about how the mother did not know that she was HIV positive until she went into the hospital to have the baby. You'll be inspired by the doctors rigorous treatment given to the baby from day one. You'll get increased hope that someday in the near future will get this horrible disease under control. For now, this is only the second time doctors have been able to say that an HIV positive patient appears to have been cured.
