From the Publisher
A deeply personal account of Elton John''s life during the
era of AIDS and an inspiring call to action.
In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after
loved one, perish needlessly from AIDS. He befriended Ryan White, a
young Indiana boy ostracized because of his HIV infection. Ryan''s
inspiring life and devastating death led Elton to two realizations:
His own life was a mess. And he had to do something to help stop
the AIDS crisis.
Since then, Elton has dedicated himself to overcoming the plague
and the stigma of AIDS. The Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised
and donated $275 million to date to fighting the disease worldwide.
Love Is the Cure includes stories of Elton''s close
friendships with Ryan White, Freddie Mercury, Princess Diana,
Elizabeth Taylor, and others, and the story of the Elton John AIDS
Sales of Love Is the Cure benefit the Elton John AIDS
