Laela is living up to her mother’s dreams and carrying out her good work. Laela is helping a countless number of people living with HIV/AIDS.
She explained to Town and Country, “We didn’t experience her as a movie star. She became impassioned about activism, and I can’t think of anything more inspiring than our grandmother’s compassion and determination for other people.”

The loss of her friend touched her deeply and she resolved in her heart to work towards ending the epidemic by co-founding The Foundation for AIDS Research and later in 1991 established her organization the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF), 1991.
