Repost from @wehealthnews @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost Meet Sonia and Eric. 7 years ago Sonia watched her mother lose her mind. Her mother had a rare prion disease (think mad cow) that one day caused her to stop sleeping. It eventually took away her memory and ability to reason before killing her.
Sonia learned that she has the same disease. However, she does not know when it will strike. Upon receiving the diagnosis, she and her husband, Eric, left their careers to obtain PhDs and begin research for a cure. They are now working at MIT and Harvard leading the search for markers than can be used to find treatments.
Such an inspiring journey!! http://wxxinews.org/post/couples-quest-stop-rare-disease-it-takes-one-them
