The mother of a Virginia boy who is fighting for his life posted a hopeful update to Facebook Tuesday night.

Aimee Hardy said there are signs that an experimental drug recently given to her 7-year-old son Josh is working after just two doses.

Josh is at the St. Jude's Children’s Hospital in Tennessee battling a rare viral infection he contracted from a bone marrow transplant.

A social media campaign helped convince a drug company to provide Josh with their treatment, which is not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
