This story must have another side to it – it just must: a drug-maker has refused to give a dying seven-year-old life-saving treatment even after a charity offered to pay for it.
The suffering patient is Josh Hardy, a cancer survivor. Over his seven-year life, Josh has suffered and survived four bouts of kidney cancer and you even suffered a heart attack. Then, in November 2013 he developed a bone marrow complication as the result of his cancer treatments. Josh subsequently underwent chemotherapy treatment and also received a bone marrow transplant at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. The treatments were a success, but Josh subsequently developed a adenovirus, which is a virulent infection that is often deadly in people with weakened immune systems.

It must be emphasized that this is a trading firm making money speculating on market moves. Yet, in 1,238 days of trading it was profitable on 1,237 of them. That's an astonishing track record to say the least.
