JOHNSTOWN - A Johnstown baby named Jax who suffers from Epidermolysis Bullosa is coming home.
Epidermolysis Bullosa is a disorder that causes his skin to blister at the slightest touch.
The one-year-old is being treated at the University of Minnesota as part of a clinical trial: undergoing chemo therapy, radiation and a bone marrow - stem cell transplant.
His grandmother tells us, after some setbacks, he's finally doing well enough to come home for a week and will arrive in the Capital District late Friday.
