Summary
When Patti Rose discovered that her mother was HIV antibody positive, prevailing medical opinion led her to believe--due to her mother's symptoms--that her mother had AIDS. In Search of Serenity is Patti Rose's first person factual account of her family's odyssey that begins with her mother's diagnosis in Harlem and extends to Nairobi, Kenya, in hopes of a solution in Kemron. Patti Rose chronicles her family's confusion, pain, hope, courage, and determination, as they explore the possibilities for a cure to their mother's illness offered by wholistic medicine, vegetarianism, AZT and Kemron. Ultimately, the emotional and educational journey leads Rose to question if HIV is the cause of AIDS. In Search of Serenity challenges African Americans to recognize the AIDS crisis as one of the most serious problems that will face Blacks world-wide in the 21st century, and to respond with a concrete, community-based plan of action--in the face of increasing community ignorance and government apathy. This is essential reading for those who want to view the human lives behind the grim statistics.--Page [4] of cover
