Weeding Out the Tears
A Mother's Story of Love, Loss and RenewalBook - 1997
The inspiring true story of an extraordinary woman who never faltered in the face of tragedy -- and who taught the world about courage, grace, dignity and a mother's love.Thirteen-year-old Ryan White contracted AIDS through tainted Factor VIII administered for his hemophilia, and became nationally known through his family's fight against the bigotry and ignorance his illness revealed in their community. This is the poignant and uplifting story of Jeanne White, Ryan's mother, who helped her son discover the strength to overcome prejudice and the courage to face death; and who remained resolute in her determination to educate a nation for the sake of justice and to honor the memory of a remarkable boy.
