In 1981, while giving birth to her son, Jake, she was transfused with several units of blood. The blood she received was later found to be contaminated with HIV. Elizabeth had a daughter, Ariel, who she was breast feeding. She and her two children were HIV positive due to the blood transfusion.
Sick herself, she continued her battle for pediatric AIDS. The book describes her frustrating experience on Capitol Hill when she fought for pediatric clinical trials of AZT. Eventually, Elizabeth helped establish the Pediatric AIDS Foundation in CA.
During this time of stigma and discrimination, this brave woman came forth to speak out for all those people fighting this insidious disease. She was a hero in the battle against AIDS. How saddened she must have felt when she didn't receive the help she asked from the government. It makes one angry that the epidemic was allowed to go on so long before any aggressive action was taken in the fight against AIDS.
I truly admire her determination and persistence. All those who read this book will realize our country should have acted sooner in addressing HIV/AIDS. This book is a "WAKE UP" call in this battle we are fighting. I feel if Elizabeth Glaser were here today, she would say,"Why haven't you done more?" We can't let her down. She fought from her heart for all the children and people infected with HIV/AIDS. This book is an eye-opener.
