This past Sunday, CBS aired a meaningful segment on late infantile metachromatic leukodystrophy and some of the families who are affected by it. The story followed the Price family as three of their seven children are diagnosed with the disease. They discuss the benefits of gene therapy and how, suprisingly, the HIV virus is being used to treat this disease.

Check out the full video of the segment below.
