Diane Reeve and Philippe Padieu both were martial arts enthusiasts, and Reeve eventually hired Padieu as an instructor at her Dallas martial arts studio.
Reeve discovered she was HIV-positive only after getting a call from another girlfriend of Padieu's who had also contracted the virus. When Reeve went to the doctor she discovered her immune system was severely compromised.
"I was at 31 [T-cells], I had AIDS," Reeve said. (Courtesy Diane Reeve)
