The Right to Try; People Mag article & petition re: Lisa Stockman Mauriello

I just read a devastating article at people.com about a woman losing her fight against a rare form of ALS. Lisa Stockman Mauriello is a UNC alumna, and I *assume* an AXO as well based on an in-article photo.

Please consider signing the change.org petition to shame Biogen, the only pharmaceutical company with a potential treatment, into offering her a chance at the experimental treatment before time runs out.

Hi Curly95, you haven't posted to GC in a while, welcome back.

In case anyone is interested in checking out the People magazine article or the photo that Curly95 mentioned, the article can be found at https://people.com/human-interest/mo...nate-use-drug/ (photo with an AXO sticker on her shirt is around 2/3 down the page).

As this is related to The Right to Try Act, here's a link to info on related legislation: https://www.fda.gov/patients/learn-a...ions/right-try

Curly95, I'm also changing your thread title from 'Lisa Stockman Mauriello' to 'The Right to Try; People Mag article & petition re: Lisa Stockman Mauriello.' And moving into the General forums section as well.
