Thinking of a friend

Editor:

This holiday season, I am thinking of my friend Paul Richey, who is dying of ALS. There is a company with a promising drug for ALS in development, but they will not release it to him, even though the FDA has approved "compassionate use" for him to have the drug. By the time the trials are over, and the drug approved, Paul may be dead. Would anyone who reads this please consider signing an online petition to help convince the company to release the drug to my friend? You can learn more, and sign the petition, at http://petition4paul.com
