(KTIV) – Lori Hermstad says the FDA has agreed to administer the first dose of the drug for Jaci Hermstad on Tuesday.

The Spencer, Iowa woman will receive three spinal infusions of a drug that doctors hope will stop and maybe even reverse the effects of ALS, which have taken a toll on her body.

The FDA approved the use of the first round of this experimental drug that has been engineered specifically for Jaci.

On Tuesday, the doctor who will be administering the drug will meet with the FDA to confirm the procedure.
