About the Author

Mary Fisher is a celebrated artist, author, and speaker who travels the world using art and advocacy to spread compassion and to empower those who share her HIV-positive status. Her vibrant, innovative artwork--including quilts, paintings, sculptures, and photographs--has been featured at galleries and museums around the globe and can be found in distinguished private and public collections. Her extraordinary life experiences, intimate photographs, and bold art have filled five previous books and are featured in several anthologies. Ms. Fisher has served on the Leadership Council of the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS and as an ambassador for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).

Perhaps best known for her history-making speech at the 1992 Republican National Convention, Ms. Fisher went on to found the Family AIDS Network, a national advocacy organization that has since become the research-oriented Mary Fisher CARE (Clinical AIDS Research and Education) Fund. Through the ABATAKA Foundation, she enables HIV-affected women in Africa to support themselves and their families by creating jewelry that she designs and markets at the website Abataka.org.

The mother of two young men, Max and Zachary, Ms. Fisher lives and works in Sedona, Arizona.

This woman is amazing and a great supporter of local arts as well as working with African women to help them make a sustainable living. She has survived more than most folks even know about, and carries on like a trooper. A great role model.

Mary Fisher is a truly gifted artist and author. Her words will undoubtedly touch you in many ways, profoundly at the least. Her story is about living, dying, and loving. It is about compassion and grace. Thank you Mary for all that you have given us.

Before reading this book, I had no idea who Mary Fisher was. When she first came out as having AIDS, I was too young to understand what it was and I was too young to ever watch politics or even the news. After reading this book, I am in awe of how strong and wonderful this woman is. This book is so well written that I almost felt as though I was by her side the whole time. She seems very humble, but should really give herself more credit for things that have been done with AIDS because of her. What an excellent role model as a human being all together!
