A Spencer woman... who's battling an aggressive form of ALS... received the first dose of an experimental drug Tuesday.
Jaci Hermstad is receiving the treatment in New York City. Her mother Lori posted on social media the first infusion went well and is resting comfortably.
While in New York, Jaci will receive three spinal infusions of the drug. Doctors hope it will stop and possibly reverse the effects of Lou Gehrig’s Disease or ALS. The second infusion will be administered in two weeks.
The FDA approved use of the first round of the drug, which was made specifically for Jaci.
