On the face of it – I am a regular South African guy, but the way my story turned out is anything but regular.
My name is Trevor Kleinhans. I was born in 1962, and I had made a success of my life. In 2003 I was 41 years old and the Managing Director of a large listed Warehousing & Distribution Company. I was successful and happy and I thought I had conquered life.
Then suddenly my life started going down hill at one hell of a pace. I had recently formed a business partnership, and needed to go for blood tests for a large life insurance policy. One of those was an HIV test. And that test came back positive. I went straight into denial. Followed closely by drug addiction.
