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 have known and respected Dr. Michael Scolaro as teacher, mentor and role model since my social work intership days in a community mental health center, when I was a graduate student at U.S.C.
I was a staff member in the late 1990s at his HIV/AIDS medical clinic and a board member for Let There Be Hope. I found in Dr. Scolaro a person of the greatest integrity and humanity with unique and unusual diagnostic abilities and a passion to help people with AIDS. His research work to find a "cure" for HIV/AIDS has been consistent and evolving. With respected colleagues, Scolaro has moved ahead on the quest. It has been his lifetime career. I am 73 now and have known Michael for 40 years. He is unusually bright and very special. I would support his work in any way I can, and suggest you do the same.

I have worked with Doc Scolaro and understand his passion. This is indeed a cause that should concern us all. HIV/Aids is not selective. We should all be concerned and supportive. This foundation could ultimately be the one lifeline that may help you or a loved one in securing a cure.
