In honor of World Aids Day Magic Johnson sat down with Oprah and shared the heartfelt story of what it was like the day he received the phone call from his L.A. doctor back in 1991.
I walk in the office and he started talking about the test. And what came out of the physical was, ‘You have HIV.’
During the ride home, Magic says he thought about how he would break the devastating news to Cookie.
The worst thing about it is I knew I was going to hurt her. Because she had waited for me, been patient with me, supported me …and now I’m about to break her heart.
Watch him relive the story below.
