Ryan White's mother is going on the road to promote the book "Ryan White: My Own Story," the late Indiana teenager's tale of his fight against AIDS.
"Ryan's mission was for us to fight the disease instead of fighting the gays, the drug users and the so-called innocent victims," Jeanne White told People magazine."Everyone is an innocent vicitm of this disease. We need to find a cure."
White still has rough days thinking about Ryan, who contracted AIDS through a tainted blood transfusion. "Sometimes when I go in his room, I break down compeltely and some days I kind of smile at all the things he got to do and how happy he was," she says.
White also has been carrying on her son's legacy by establishing a research and support fund in his name and tstifying before Congress.
