FIRSTHAND: Coronavirus – Lori Cannon


Lori Cannon lost hundreds of friends during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and ’90s when she earned the nickname “AIDS angel” for her tireless work feeding thousands of sick patients. The coronavirus has spurred her to action once again. She is now using the very same networks she established 30 years ago to serve a new generation of sick and homebound Chicagoans.
