Clovis man loses battle with ALS

CLOVIS, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Clovis man who battled ALS for almost two years and seemed to make progress after enrolling in a UC Irvine study has passed away.

When Action News first met Mark Harrison in May, he was taking steps in the right direction.

A month after his first stem cell injection, Mark was back on his feet for the first time in a while and his speech sounded better. But the improvements were short-lived.

Mark Harrison passed away Friday with his family surrounding him and Alabama playing in his room.
