The riveting true story of John and Aileen Crowley's race to find a cure for Pompe disease that inspired the movie "Extraordinary Measures"
With three beautiful children, a new house, and financial security, John and Aileen Crowley were on top of the world--until their two youngest children, fifteen-month-old Megan and five-month-old Patrick, were diagnosed with Pompe disease and given only months to live. Refusing to accept a death sentence, John quit his financial consultant job and invested his life savings in a biotechnology start-up to research the disease and find a cure. Battling scientific setbacks, conflict of interest accusations, and business troubles, John and Aileen would be tested to their limits as they valiantly fought, and succeeded, in finding revolutionary new treatment for the disease--offering hope to Megan, Patrick, and the many children and families affected by Pompe disease around the world.
The inspiration for the captivating film "Extraordinary Measures," starring Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford, "The Cure" is a remarkable true story of cutting-edge science, business acumen and daring, and one family's indomitable spirit.
