  • This episode was about a young woman who suffered with a rare neurological disease called Myoclonus. It was a real-life story, and portrayed the difficulties that someone with a rare disease must face on a daily basis.moreless

    This episode allowed a rare glimpse into the life of a patient requiring treatment for a rare disease, and the fight to get a legislative solution to the problem of orphan drugs.



    While this episode promoted public knowledge of a little-known problem, it was actually a follow-up to an episode that had previously aired. More than a year before, Jack Klugman had done an episode about another rare disease and the struggle to obtain the drugs with which to treat it.



    By airing this episode at the appropriate time, Klugman forced the United States Senate to pass legislation for Orphan Drugs.moreless
