Hunting Down His Son’s Killer | Freethink Superhuman

Matt and Cristina Might’s son was born with an illness doctors couldn’t identify. Matt Might, a computer science professor, worked with doctors to sequence their genetic data and discover that he was the first known case of NGLY1 deficiency, a genetic disorder. Today, thanks to innovative efforts to find other patients and identify new treatments, he’s at the forefront of a new movement called precision medicine. Watch the inspiring story behind the viral blog post “Hunting Down My Son’s Killer.”

    There could literally be other cases in impoverished nations. If they could have been found first maybe by now they would be at the very least studying it and experimenting

    Could his son have a biofilm infection, w/ the Prevacid just covering it up temporarily? If biofilm aren't there treatments?

    You are on to something big, I have always felt all medications should be treated by precision medication to avoid side effects and delays to regain good health without damage, generalized treatments takes long and usually adds more issues while trying to mend. You and your wife are changing the world for your son but the world and how Medical professionals treat future patients. I'm scared because our president lifted FDA guidelines on our basic needs for survival which could muddy up all your family's work. But, alot of us are praying. watching and supportive of what you are doing. Thank you

    Why not do a MRI, genetic test for pathogens, then treat?

    Its children like this that New York and Virginia want to destroy because of a new Infanticide Law constructed by the Democratic leftists, socialists, and Liberal Evil.
