Gerald Audio: "We're just two people but if we can do something that's positive, that's better than standing in the wings and not doing anything. Every good result that comes from medication or a cure comes from people that are willing to step forward and volunteer. And that's why we're doing it."
Linda Audio: "You got to keep working at it."
