Their greatest challenge came not long after their marriage when Magic was diagnosed with HIV.

Their greatest challenge came not long after their marriage when Magic was diagnosed with HIV. At the time, Cookie had been pregnant with their son, EJ, and had been terrified her husband would die and she and her son would get infected. 

Cookie would later detail how the diagnosis changed their lives forever in a book titled, "Believing in Magic." The book features the tale behind her marriage, losing their way, and finally finding a way they never imagined
