Now hes going to be taking trips back and forth for the next six months as he takes part in a clinical trial to treat something hes been dealing with for years: Niemann-Pick disease.Around age 13, Clark started showing symptoms. It took doctors almost seven years to diagnose him.His primary doctors didnt even know about the disease -- never heard about it before, said Amanda Clark, Randy Clarks sister.Niemann-Pick disease is an extremely rare, degenerative disease that affects one in every 150,000 people. Symptoms include tremors, clumsiness and difficulty swallowing, speaking, walking and moving the eyes. So far, Randy Clark has had one infusion of the drug thats supposed to help improve his quality of life.We noticed with the first infusion, his speech was better, said Carol Clark, Randy Clarks mother. He had a really difficult time talking. He had been aspirating a lot. We hadnt seen any of that since the first infusion, so that is promising.The hardest part of it all is being away from his family. Clark is getting back into town Feb. 28.A benefit is planned in his honor at Daltons Sports Grill in Middleburg. Its set for Sunday, March 3 from noon to 6 p.m.
