As part of today's national HIV testing day, free HIV tests are offered statewide.
The Arkansas Department of Health partners with the centers for disease control every year to organize HIV testing day.
The free tests are available at Arkansas Department of Health units across the state.
Doctors say 1 in 5 people infected with HIV don't even know it.
Health department statistics show since 1983 more than 8,000 Arkansans have been diagnosed with HIV.
USA Drug gave a massive check to the American Cancer Society from it's April fundraiser today.
The check totals more than $152,000.
In April, USA Drug held the "create a world with less cancer and more birthdays icon" campaign - at 150 stores in Arkansas and five other states.
Customers had the opportunity to donate to the American Cancer Society.
Customers then received a "birthday cake icon" placed on display in the store.
To stick with the birthday theme, everyone there got cake!
