I have known Alesia Shute during the past two decades through her and her husband, Cliff Shute, and their dedication to my research in maternal, infant, pediatric, and adolescent AIDS basic, clinical, and translational research. Throughout the years, Alesia has shown her kindness, generosity, and enthusiasm for those in need of help that suffer from debilitating and deadly diseases including AIDS and cancer. This book encompasses how Alesia came to have such compassion and kindness for others. Alesia is a colleague, friend, and wonderful supporter of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Joseph Stokes Jr. Research Institute. It is a pleasure to participate in the dedication of her autobiography.
