Jack Klugman’s secret, lifesaving legacy: fighting for awareness of "orphan" diseases

One thing you may not know about the late "Quincy" star Jack Klugman: he advocated for the development of treatments for rare diseases. "The problem was that many terrible diseases didn’t afflict enough people to entice pharmaceutical companies to develop treatments. Hence they were 'orphan' diseases. They included Tourette’s syndrome, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, spina bifida, ALS and many more." (WaPo, thanks @caliban23)
