Inclusive Language—Talking about People with Disabilities and Diseases, How do you write this sentence properly?
Her brother has a friend that is living with Aids.
A friend of her brother has AIDs.
You can also use:
Her brother has a friend who is living with AIDS.
The brother is a person; therefore use "who" rather than "that."
AIDS stands for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. All letters of this acronym need to be capitalized.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
Sorry, the friend is the person, but you still need to use "who."
