In 1994, Marion Bunch lost her son, Jerry, to AIDS.
It was early in the U.S. AIDS epidemic, and the stigma of the disease kept her from talking about her son’s illness with anyone but family members. But three years later, Bunch recalls feeling a tap on her shoulder and hearing a voice telling her to “get up and get going.”
“It was an epiphany … that completely altered the course of my life,” she says.
