Not quite on topic, but very important

Hi folks--
If you read this blog at all, if you are reading this post, please click over to this other blog, by the family of a 14-year-old girl with a mysterious, undiagnosed, and rapidly degenerative neuromuscular disease. She is running out of time to find a diagnosis and effective treatment--imagine if there were no known treatment for breast cancer, or if we didn't really even know what the problem was! The family is just looking for ANYONE, anywhere, who has experienced similar symptoms--so if you are (or know) a doctor who might have seen such a patient, or if you are (or know) such a patient, please contact them. (The father is a professor in my field at another university.)
Thanks, and this just underscores yet again how randomly cruel life can be.
