Scott and Nancy

Nancy is Scott's mother.  

She is one of the many women who suffers every breath with her loved one who has AIDS.  

Scott is a hemophiliac who was transfused with "bad" blood.  10,000 hemophiliacs were transfused with tainted blood before mandatory screening.  That's 50% of the hemophiliac population. 5-6,000 are now dead.

Many are kids like Scott who prepared to die at the height of youth.  

Nancy is one of the women who lives with AIDS.  She does not carry the virus inside of her.  

She soothes her son and takes his pain, carrying it in her heart.
