Ruth Coker Burks: The Cemetery Angel

I had the honor of talking with Ruth Coker Burks, a truly inspirational woman. During the outbreak of the AIDS epidemic, at a time when people knew very little about this deadly disease, Ruth took it upon herself to care for nearly1,000 patients who had no one to turn to. Feeling abandoned, alone and scared was unacceptable to Ruth when she learned that so many dying patients needed help.

Listen to the story of an incredible woman who didn't give into fear, and became a mother to so many sick patients who so desperately needed one on my new YouTube here
