This narrative non-fiction reveals the importance of friendship to women's well-being when they are going through crisis; in this case a woman who loses a daughter to AIDS.

Lacey was taking blood from a full blown AIDS patient when a nurse bumped into her causing her to stick herself with the needle. She rushed to the laboratory and vomited.

In catching up with Lin, Bev was shocked to hear that Lacey had tried to commit suicide. Shedidn't realize Lacey had been so depressed. She lost friends when they found out she was HIV positive and she was so sick. She couldn't keep food down. Her medications kept her so groggy she was afraid to drive her car. So she saved her pills to take all at once. Her stomach was pumped out in the nick of time and she survived. She tried committing suicide again and again months later until she was put into a psychiatric hospital.

Professional Reviews

Dr. Kevin Carmichael
This true story is a touching portrayal of what best friends mean to each other when tragedy occurs.

Steve Quinlan, CEO Long Realty
If you want to learn how to conquer your fears of such a dreaded disease as AIDS, read this true story of how friends stick together and keep hope anew no matter how grim the diagnosis. Startling statistics don't reveal the heartfelt loss of losing a loved one to this disease but reading this true story does.
