Lives Saved Mooney

I was making an attempt to row from Cape Verde to New York to encourage voluntary HIV testing and advocate prevention. Early on, my boat took on water. I deployed my life raft and drifted for days before I was rescued. On my second day, a ship approached me, but turned away. I certainly had some divine intervention, but I was prepared with the best tools. ACR supplied me with a pair of beacons. I'll be sharing this story at the World Maritime Rescue Congress in Shanghai this August.
