Ryan White: My Own Story
This book was written personally by heroic Indiana's own Ryan White. It tells through his own eyes the life he lead, before he passed away from the AIDS virus. It delves into deep detail of the way he dealt with hemophilia, which was diagnosed at birth and how he contracted the disease at age 13, the treatment he endured due to this disease; which includes hatred within his own hometown to where he was forced out and had to move to a more accepting town.
You also hear of the work he did by spreading the word and speaking with compassion the truth of this virus. It was told that many different things would've happened to others by anything more than just association with Ryan, which he had to relocate schools, due to the ignorance of this town.
He fought for the right to an education, since the school in which the district remained, tried to deny him one.
With great courage, Ryan began speaking at schools and fundraisers around the country, becoming a spokesman on the fight for AIDS.
In The End:
I Loved It!
I found it to be inspiring and grateful to have read it!
The way Ryan DID NOT let his disease define who he was. Although a sad ending, this book can teach you to be grateful for the small meanial things in life.
