Day 113, Ryan White's Mother Remembers 25 Years Later

25 years later, we've come so far in, but still have so far to go in terms of progress. Roughly 12,000 Hemophiliacs in the early 80's were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, and Ryan White became a national icon for news media and press during his struggles and battles in his home town to overcome the stigma of his illness, and the ignorance of so many against the White family. Thanks for all you do Jeanne White-Ginder, and thanks for being a voice over the past 25 years for so many who don't or can't.
