About the Book: Love is the Cure
Through personal stories of close encounters with people like Ryan White, Freddie Mercury and many others, Sir Elton will convey the personal toll AIDS has taken on his life and his infinite determination to stop its spread.
In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after loved one, perish needlessly from aids. In the midst of the plague, he befriended Ryan White, a young Indiana boy ostracized by his town and his school because of the HIV infection he had contracted from a blood transfusion. Love is the Cure is Elton's personal account of his life during the aids epidemic, including stories of his close friendships with Ryan White, Freddie Mercury, Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor.
Elton writes, 'This is a disease that must be cured not by a miraculous vaccine, but by changing hearts and minds, and through a collective effort to break down social barriers and to build bridges of compassion. Why are we not doing more? This is a question I have thought deeply about, and wish to answer - and help to change - by writing this book.'
