ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the life and battle of Christine Maggiore, who was an anti-HIV-AIDS patient and founder of the Health Education AIDS Liaison (HEAL). He relates how Maggiore, after testing positive for HIV and encountering a negative medical approach to the disease, became an advocate against AIDS drugs. He expresses regret on his former antipathy towards the issue of AIDS that caused him to miss opportunities that could have led to a good relationship with Maggiore while she was still alive.
