Supporters believe Gov. Bevin could soon sign bill aimed at helping people fight rare disease

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Supporters of a proposed bill headed to Gov. Matt Bevin's desk could save lives.

Senate Bill 7, which would provide help for people fighting rare diseases in the state, cleared unanimously in both the Kentucky House and Senate this week. The bill would create a rare disease advisory council, trust fund and provide research and treatment.

The advisory council would be made up of legislators, doctors, patients and caregivers, and supporters say it doesn't cost the state any money.

Watch the video above to see a testimonial from someone pushing for the bill who is suffering from a rare disease.
