Company Brings Back Life-Saving Formula

There is good news for a family that's been fighting a long and difficult battle. A lifeline is in sight for a young boy.

Jamus Hovseth has a rare disease that only allows him to eat a specific type of formula and nothing else. The family was frantic after the company stopped making that formula.

Now, his mother says she has learned the company plans to start production again.

Robyn Hovseth told us, "Until I said it out loud to my husband after I hung up the phone, I didn't believe it. It's been a very crazy day with lots of congratulations phone calls. So it's amazing just to know they're listening finally."

The decision comes after thousands signed a petition to bring back the formula. Robyn says only about 25 other families in the entire world have a child with the disease.
