The ALS Treatment Tourney Makes The World's Smallest Set Of Bracket Choices

How are your men's NCAA hoops bracket picks doing? Did you pick with your heart rather than your head? Are you questioning the original seeds? Are you looking up data on VCU now that they've become the hottest team in the tourney.

With a few google searches, you can find data on every team in the NCAA hoops tourney in exquisite detail. You can make informed choices. You can override your data sense and pick with your heart if you like, but you can swim in data if you like.

People with ALS don't have data to help make informed treatment choices. Shoot, they don't have enough treatment options to give them even a two-round bracket.

What is wrong with this picture?
