American political activist, artist and author.
After contracting HIV from her second husband, she has become an outspoken advocate for AIDS prevention and education and for the compassionate treatment of people with HIV and AIDS. She is particularly noted for two speeches before the Republican Convention in Houston in 1992, and in San Diego in 1996. The 1992 speech has been hailed as "one of the best American speeches of the 20th Century."
She is founder of a non-profit organization to fund HIV/AIDS research and education, the Mary Fisher Clinical AIDS Research and Education (CARE) Fund. Since May 2006, she has been a global emissary for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).
Sy Scholfield quotes Mary Fisher's book, "My Name Is Mary: A Memoir" (Scribner, 1996), p. 33: "No child of hers would need to endure the stigma of having "Bluefield" on a birth certificate -- not when Louisville stood nearby, ... There, at high noon on April 6, 1948, I was born in Jewish Hospital: Lizabeth Davis Frehling."
