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.

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.

I have known Dr. Scolaro since 1988. His drive and dedication against HIV/AIDS has never diminished. Let There Be Hope Foundation is a product of his relentless commitment towards the fight against AIDS.

In any research the caliber of the people involved must be of exceptional dedication and intelligence . Dr. Michael Scolaro has exhibited a kind of genius as well as an endless drive toward achieving in the progress of HIV and other cancer research.

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.

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.

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 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.
