Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: The Reverend Steve Pieters on how he overcame two forms of cancer and a nearly fatal reaction to the experimental AIDS drug suramin in 1985 by developing his own wellness program (which included healthy dosages of I LOVE LUCY every day); how the fear and paranoia surrounding COVID-19 today is not unlike the stigma he faced in the 1980s when he was first diagnosed with HIV/AIDS; and how the television interview he gave to evangelist Tammy Faye Bakker in 1985 changed his life, and hers as well.
