When Friends Turn Their Backs on the Ill
Having lived in Le Roy, New York her entire life, "Anderson" guest Marge had a large group of friends in the area -- which she never suspected would abandon her in light of any form of illness. When Marge came down with the mystery illness plaguing the town of Le Roy, she was surprised to find that a few friends did turn their backs on her.
"When you go through something like this, you find out who your friends are and the people that you can lean on," Marge says. "Those that don't want to be around you… those are the people that you don't really want in your life anyway."
Given the still relatively unknown circumstances of the illness, many people are frightened that Marge is contagious. Others simply can't handle the changes Marge is going through because of her condition.
