How Is Lorenzo Doing These Days?

Lorenzo’s Oil is on Bravo right now and Mrs. Rastahomie keeps asking me a bunch of questions (as if I’m an expert because I saw it once nearly 10 years ago. :rolleyes:

Is Lorenzo still alive? I’m guessing he’d be pushing 21 right about now. Any progress on “curing” him?

Also, what is the outlook for boys diagnosed with ALD today? Do a couple of swigs of Lorenzo’s Oil cure you for good, or is the outlook still pretty bad?


And, from a May 8, 2001 article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Both links also discuss ALD and its treatment more generally.
