Up until six years ago, Matthew and Michael Clark were both living normal lives. They had full time jobs, families, and were productive members of society. However at roughly the same time, the brothers (they are not twins) were diagnosed with a terminal form of leukodystrophy, a group of extremely rare genetic disorders that attacks the Myelin, or white matter in the nervous system, spinal cord, and the brain. For the Clark brothers, this condition has not only impaired their physical abilities, but it has also eroded their emotional and mental states as well.
The Clark brothers are now in the full time care of their parents, who are both in their mid-sixties. The Clark brothers (ages 42 and 37 respectively) now spend their time playing with Mr. Potato Head, fighting over Monopoly, and in increasingly rare moments of clarity, they struggle with how and why their lives have changed so dramatically.
