After Dodging a Death Sentence, Looking for a Cure

I grew up next door to Jehovah’s Witnesses who actually believed that people who get transfusions are going to hell. They ridiculed me on the bus, and they spat in our faces when we opened the front door. I was between three and nine years old when these people were really accosting my family, and it was one of the most directly confrontational experiences that I’ve ever had. To this day, I’ve never encountered so much bias and irrationally steadfast antagonism about a person doing what he needs to do to stay alive.
