The Forever Fix: Gene Therapy and the Boy Who Saved It is a new book about Corey Haas, a little boy born blind with LCA. The book recounts his experiences with genetic therapy and how the therapy was able to restore his sight.

This is the first book to tell the fascinating story of gene therapy: how it works, the science behind it, how patients (mostly children) have been helped and harmed, and how scientists have learned from each trial to get one step closer to its immense promise, the promise of a “forever fix,” – a cure that, by fixing problems at their genetic root, does not need further surgery or medication.
