Synopsis

Die Trying

Correspondent: Angelina Fanous

The 2014 Ice Bucket Challenge raised millions of dollars for ALS, a fatal neurodegenerative disease. While the social media wave gave new life to ALS research, there is still no viable treatment, and access to experimental drugs is limited. Battling ALS herself, VICE editor Angelina Fanous meets with patients and top researchers across the U.S. to find out what's being done to tackle this devastating disease and the regulatory hurdles faced by ALS patients and drugmakers alike.
