Cordelia was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 2001 after battling with tuberculosis (TB) for four years. The baby in her body map speaks to her having been pregnant while battling with TB; it was a very tough time for her. The dots that cover her silhouette are a representation of the skin condition that developed due to the disease.
