Jeff Getty, AIDS ACTIVIST
« on: October 15, 2006, 11:43:26 PM »
I remember reading about JEFF GETTY, AIDS ACTIVIST when he received his baboon marrow transplant in 1995.  I found it a very humbling experience then and today still feel his energy and devotion.  I am truly greatful for all he and others before him have done for our cause.

"He wasn't easy to work with,'' said Michael Lauro, an organizer who teamed with Getty in the advocacy groups ACT UP Golden Gate and Survive AIDS. "That's how people with great vision, great hearts and great drive are like. He could get things done.''

He sounds like one tough cookie ....And noble too - To advocate new treatments for other people, knowing full well those therapies were useless to himself, well, there are no words for that  ... Thank you Robert

Hey Robert,

Thanks for sharing this with us. Truly this was an act of courage on Jeff's part for HIV/AIDS research. My hat is off to him for going through with this transplant.
