Oprah: Where Are They Now?
Elizabeth Glaser on Her Family's Struggle with AIDS
Elizabeth Glaser, wife of Starsky & Hutch star Paul Michael Glaser, had her world turned upside down in the '80s when she discovered she had received AIDS-tainted blood from a hospital and unknowingly passed it along to her two young children. After the Glasers' daughter, Ariel, passed away from AIDS in 1988, Elizabeth and her family went public with their story. Appearing on The Oprah Show in 1991, Elizabeth spoke with Oprah about her loss and experience with the disease. Look back on that episode to hear Elizabeth, who passed away three years after the interview, describe in her own words how she dealt with her daughter's death, why she chose not to give up and what she hoped for the future of AIDS research.
