Hydeia Broadbent facts: Age, parents, husband, children, net worth, death-

Hydeia Broadbent was an HIV activist and motivational speaker born on June 14, 1984.

Broadbent was adopted as an infant by Loren and Patricia Broadbent after her birth mother abandoned her at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.

After being diagnosed with HIV/AIDS at a young age, Broadbent spent the rest of her life advocating for its awareness.

“My life’s mission is met in two folds: first to use my life as a prevention tool for those who are HIV negative to make informed decisions to stay HIV negative, and also for those living with HIV/AIDS to find hope and inspiration not to allow HIV or AIDS to hold them back from living their best life,” she once said.

“I use my testimony as a warning of what you don’t want to go through.”
