Christine and Cheryl

Christine and Cheryl met in a support group for women "recently diagnosed with HIV".  What they had in common was the virus -- little else.  They became fast allies in the effort to stay well and to educate kids.  Christine would say about HIV, "Get to know it before it gets to know you".  

Cheryl would quietly talk about her husband, Dick, dead after a long battle with AIDS.  She'd express her worry about her own health and talk like a mother to kids who she felt needed guidance and love.
