At age 2, shortly after immigrating to Canada from England with her mother and sister — her mom fled an abusive and unfaithful husband — Habanyama became ill. A battery of tests revealed both she and her mom had HIV, which can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). (Habanyama says her father contracted HIV from a sexual partner and transmitted it to her mom, who then passed it on to her perinatally.)
