Just a note to say thanks for the strngth and encouragement that your honesty and bravery has given so many people, including me and my friends in [Redacted]. I just got diagnosed with AIDS, and on the first night I was sitting in the hospital with pneumonia, I saw your story on TV. I'm convinced that it helped me get better faster, and it sure helped my spirits (I'm from Indiana originally, too.) Take care and keep up the great work!
Best wishes, [Redacted]
