This is a great article about my good friends Eric and Sonia, who are racing the clock to find a cure for her rare terminal genetic disease:

(But because it's so rare, their life-saving research is not supported by grants. If their courage and determination make you want to help, this is the best month to contribute, because a generous donor is matching May donations in honor of their PhD defenses:
