Dilley was a recent guest on ITV, a British Morning Show where she shared the account of contracting the virus and the reactions from family and friends.
The Mom, nearly 40 years old at the time of contraction told the show host that while she did have unprotected sex with her partner, she didn’t think that she could contract HIV because she was white and “thought you got it in Africa.”
