A true story. Fun-loving Patrick was always on the go. He played the piano and loved to toboggan, skate and ski. So his younger sister barely noticed that he needed daily shots because of his hemophilia. She also didn't know Patrick had a secret. Because of a tainted blood transfusion, he was HIV positive. Nobody but their parents knew. So Patrick continued his life of laughter, friendship and accomplishment, winning trophies and awards for everything he tried. When he developed full-blown AIDS, Patrick decided to go public so that others would realize that HIV and AIDS are preventable. Patrick's Wish, a picturebook of photographs and text, tells the compelling story of this boy who embraced life and laughter until his last day. His wish to fight HIV and AIDS through education is inspiring young people today. Patrick had one wish: to raise awareness and find a cure. This compelling story of his life is aimed at making his wish come true.
