Michael's story

Michael Wartman.JPGIn the last years of his life, Michael Wartman was considered a hero by many. He moved back to Moncton, publicly declared his HIV status and worked hard to lessen the stigma associated with the disease. But on September 15th, 2000, Michael Wartman passed away. Since his death, his family has carried on his work and they've just won a national award. The CBC's Kate Letterick spoke with his sister, Patti Wartman.
