  • Descrição: Ramirez describes her life after being diagnosed with Hansen's disease (HD), more commonly known as leprosy. He states that suffering from HD has been equated to dying--watching everything familiar disappear, and entering a different dimension and meeting strangers just as caring as one's own family and friends. While admitted in the hospital, he tackles about his involvement to a new family and an infrastructure created by a Law of Silence--the practice of lawmakers and policy makers capitulating to fears of leprosy by refusing to tackle the pain of stigma.
