Michael Scolaro's dedication to combating the HIV virus has never flagged. His commitment to finding a cure has not diminished in the 25 years I have known him. Indeed, with the inception of Let There Be Hope, his quest has embraced ever more-promising leads. This is an organization of impressive creativity with keen, realistic leadership.

I have known the Executive Director of Let There Be Hope Medical Research for over 40 years. During that time, Michael Scolaro's dedication to finding a cure for HIV has been a personal crusade in which he has enlisted the help of talented medical professionals and committed citizens. He has been tireless in following leads and inaugurating research. Nothing has had a higher priority in his life.
While detail-oriented, his goal is the grand one of all medical research--the elimination of disease and the improvement of life's quality.
Sincerely,
Harry Hughes

The development of Anti-viral medications have extended the lives of patients with HIV very well so far. People who are HIV pos now test undetectable for the virus.

Although the virus is still harbored in the reservoirs that continually spit them out for the drugs to eliminate in the blood stream. The research of Let There Be Hope seems to go one step further buy bring drugs into the reservoirs that harbor the virus. This will eliminate the virus completely and allow people to stop the medications that cause so many untoward side effects. It seems to me that LTBH has a handle on eliminating this disease completely from the system. I’m very encouraged by what I read of their research and believe in supporting them whole heartedly .

I’m a health care provider and have seen a disease that was once a death sentence, turn into one that is manageable with medications.

Now I want to see it eliminated completely in my lifetime.

Many a hopeful heart.

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

see it funded to completion of clinical trial

Having known members of the staff affiliated with LTBH for many years, and their dedication to find the means to eliminate infectious HIV reservoirs, which persist despite all current treatment approaches, I am writing to give my personal endorsement to their important research efforts. Helping them raise funds to continue with the preclinical studies necessary to move into human trials is critical, and I fully support their efforts

I have watched this dedicated organization do research that no one has done yet for a disease that knows no boundries. They are amazing and I believe will find a cure.
