This is not an easy story to read, the Today Show has an article on two brothers, both with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  One of them is too sick to receive the experimental treatment, while the other is making remarkable progress on it.

I hope that the FDA approves their application so that the older sibling can start on this treatment, it sounds like it is very effective.  

Any thoughts on the story?
