Hermstad Receives Another Experimental Drug Dose
February 13, 2020 5:32pm
A Spencer woman battling a rare form of A-L-S, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, received her 11th infusion of an experimental drug Wednesday.
The family of 26-year-old Jaci Hermstad of Spencer is hoping the drug called A-S-O can save her life. Jaci is a Storm Lake native.
Her mother says Valentine's Day marks one year since Jaci was diagnosed with A-L-S and nine years since her twin sister Alex died from the disease.
Physical therapists in November said that Jaci was showing signs of progress with her core/hip muscles.
The Hermstad family says 22-year-old twin brothers will be infused with the same drug being used to treat Jaci.
