It has been 20 years since Ryan White passed away from the AIDS virus. Indiana University in Bloomington will mark the anniversary
Friday with a ceremony honoring his life and an announcement about a special scholarship in his name. White became the national
poster child for HIV/AIDS in the United States after he contracted HIV at age 13 from a tainted blood transfusion. He died
April 8, 1990, just four months before he was to begin his freshman year at IU. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
