iMy introduction to Let There Be Hope (LTBH) and its outstanding research was through Dr. Michael Scalaro. Working as a physician in the Greater Los Angeles area I had the privilege to work directly and indirectly with Dr Scalaro through patient care. As I began to find out more about LTBH and the organizations efforts to develop treatments for infectious diseases and cancer I began participating in fund raising and public awareness. I had the honor of being asked to be a Board Member some years later and have continued to lend support whenever possible. Although my time with the organization is limited, as I have been working out of the country for the past seven years, I know this very dedicated group of individuals will continue to expend exceptional energy for these medical breakthroughs.

Although there is nothing i have experienced n terms of what this company has given me other than tremendous satisfaction of being involved with something very important. It will always be one of the more important entities i have been associated with in my life. This non profit organization is dedicated to the development of treatments of infections diseases and cancer, that generates some very positive energy for the planet and us humans.

I am sure there are many things that in retrospect one would change when reflecting on the past. As far as this company is concerned, although an active Board member for a couple years and since non active for many more, there was nothing i had ever seen that cause me pause for consideration. I truly have never seen a group of more hard working and dedicated individuals trying to do something very important for others in need.

This organization has been an adjunct to ALL research involving HIV/AIDS and can be directly attributed to what we see today as no longer a death sentence, but a relatively manageable medical condition

Let there Be Hope has always been at the forefront of the fight against HIV and Aids. I have purchased paintings created by Michael Scolaro at fundraisers and donated money whenever possible. My closest and best friends have been helped by Let there Be hope. I have been privileged to know the people that have been dedicating their lives to this great cause. Let there Be Hope is and always has been a clear path for those of us who want to help but just don't know how.

This organization has made great strides in research with very limited resources because of the efforts of the founder without compensation and the dedication of volunteers and interested parties. For example the founder allowed the organization to utilize his medical practice facilities, staff and resources without payment. This allowed LTBH to conduct a number of projects at minimal cost.

Funding is now the key for future growth.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By reviewing the summaries of the research projects.

I would expand the number of volunteers specifcally for fund raising efforts.

Dear Reader,

This is the most important work in the world.

The global destruction cause by these viruses is immeasurable; both of these programs need to be as fully supported as is possible.
Everyone knows the cure is so close yet just out of reach.

I personally have many friends that are living with HIV and have been, for the most part living reasonably comfortable lives. But I don't fool myself that they also endure days, weeks and months of agonizing pain and fear. Whoever is reading these comments and is in a position to help - I beg you to please make that difference.

Thank you and God bless you.

My cat developed stomach cancer and for months I had to give him shots, that eventually stopped helping. Maybe if Let There Be Hope had finished their research, their cure could have helped my cat, at least take away the pain and confusion. I know many people that have lost a pet to cancer. It's time these Angels didn't have to suffer this way.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be the one to write a check to Let There Be Hope for $10,000,000 and in all the names of my loved ones that are still here, and the ones that are now with my cat. If not now - when ?

I have been working in a clinical laboratory base in Beverly Hills where most of our clients are HIV practice. The laboratory shared the building with Dr Michael Scolaro who is the founder of the Let There Be Hope Foundation and i personally had witnessed the dedication that Dr Scolaro have for the Foundation and to his patients. I also had daily contacts with HIV patients who come in for their lab works who all express their hope of finding a cure for the disease.

I've personally experienced the results of Let There be Hope Foundation at my job where we performed most of the laboratory works for the HIV patients

I have known and worked with Dr.Scolaro since 1990. When there was no AZT or hope for HIV patients. I remember him working late in to the night trying to save his patients.This was at the time when some other doctors would tell me in private that we should not spend any money on an incurable disease! But Dr. Scolaro would never stop trying to save lives and giving hope to people who had none.Let there be hope as it name applies is truly an organization based on the same principals that we should never stop trying to help people even when there is no hope. I am proud to have known Dr. Scolaro and to be associated with Let There Be Hope Foundation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

For some time I worked with other scientists to find ways to deliver anti-retroviral drugs to cells that played as a reservoir to HIV virus. One such a method was by encapsulating the drug in to a liposome. Although we were able to show great promise it did not come to be because simply we lacked the funding.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not want to change LTBH foundation but only help this organization to reach its goals.
