It is said that the Doctors found a new disease... and had no cure to it... and at the end of the movie Jenny dies.. What do you think the disease was.. was it communicable.. if so we should certainly be thinking of whether forrest is also affected..??

We had discussed it in the school. We doubted whether Jenny had AIDS as her symptoms seemed to be this disease. If so, Forrest Gump might also have this disease, too. So it didn't make a sense as Forrest Gump was pretty healthy. So we had no answer to this question. I love China

It can be but I think Jenny got that disease after she 'left him again' when Forrest was on a run for 3 years.Moreover the final stage of HIV usually do not cause disease in a healthy immune system so she was looking more or less normal in the very last of the movie.

the first mind when i read this post is Jenny has got a cancer, but after reading all the responce, i have to admit that it is possible she is got an HIV, but the boy was born pretty health, so can't be sure. Anyway, this movie is great and impressive all the time in my life.
