My character was a strong-willed individual; he faced many obstacles along the way. Bo's problem with drugs after the Vietnam War would lead him to recovery, and relapse several times. He managed to stay clean for many years and live a productive life, until AIDS entered his world. Once he delivered the news of contracting AIDS, the daily struggle with the disease, co workers, and a once loving and supportive family began.

It doesn't matter if we are AIDS patients, single mothers, fighting addiction or just people dealing with turmoil's life can bring.
