AIDS victim giving hope to others

LaGena Lookabill Greene gained national attention when she went public with the news that the late NASCAR driver Tim Richmond infected her with HIV in 1986. Eventually the infection developed into AIDS and the former actress was told she'd have six months to live. She's still alive today, relying on a copious cocktail of medications. Staff writer Jennifer Rothacker spoke with Greene, 47, and living in Indian Trail. Her answers have been edited for space.
