Keep Ryan White's legacy, says Ellen #saveryanwhitepartd #nyhaad

It makes me angry and thoroughly disgusted with the politicians who would so callously get rid of a program that has helped so many people who are living in such difficult circumstances. This action would be an insult to the memory of a courageous young  man who not only had to fight a terrible disease, but also a general public that lacked compassion due to fear of what they didn't understand. Ryan's struggle plowed the way to make the lives of those who came after him (with AIDS) easier. We need Ryan's  legacy to continue through this program and to serve as a reminder of the difference one person can make.
