1990 is a horrible time to have HIV progress to AIDs. I keep thinking about Freddie Mercury, Pedro Zamora, and other celebrities that died in the early 90s from it.
If they couldnt beat it with money and resources, Blanca (or Pray Tell even) IRL wouldn't stand a chance of surviving long enough to have access to today's drugs.
I wonder if the show will actually go there, with either her or Pray Tell. They both add so much heart to the show, but I know that both actors could act the hell out of someone dying from the disease.
