Dear Mr. President,

I know you are probably flooded with emails so thanks for reading this one. Please help me have the ALS association use the money to give my brother and all those in MN and America who did not qualify for the Neurown study at the Mayo Clinic the drug/treatment that was used on the Rabbi in Israel. I'm sure you know that he was on deaths door with ALS and was cured completely. Let me know what I can do to make this happen. I think with all of the attention right now throughout the county the red tape may disappear and everyone can see an immediate cure to this illness!!!

Please Forget the FDA parameters. They need the treatment right now.

Please get people working on this right now. There are thousands and thousands of donations for my brother. He is a psychiatrist at the VA in MN and still continues to work. He has 2 small girls who need him. Let's make MN and America the first to do what makes sense in the heart. That's what people want right now. The Rabbi was important and so are so many people with this illness. Is there an MD that would be willing to do this? This would make history on top of you already making history and being a wonderful president.

Thank you so much for the work you are doing.

God speed,

Kristin Brown,
