Two Men And Their One Voice

Produced by

Scott Haren and Ben Harris met in a support group for people with Lou Gehrig's disease, also known as ALS. In this conversation, Scott (left) voices the words of his friend Ben, who types them onto a computer because he no longer can speak. They describe researching and making their own medicine and taking it themselves - a do-it-yourself attempt to slow the progression of the disease.

A Duke University researcher has put together a website to help people make sense of the investigation of alternative and off-label ALS treatments.
