Darlene Gant is dying from stage 4 breast cancer. She caught wind of a new drug on the horizon that could help win her a few extra months, or weeks, or days, or even hours with her family. She didn't have the time to wait for approval or for the product to launch. She needed those days now. She asked, and she received.
The story has been all over the news today, not comic book or geek related in any way, but still worth mentioning here because this bold woman's dying wish happens to be part of my day job.
I am but a tiny speck of a cog in the vast system of agencies and experts involved, but I was still touched to learn I've touched something of this thing that is bound to do some real good.
Watch the 20 grueling minutes of hope that paid off here.
