Description

In 1998, at 15 months old, Megan Crowley was diagnosed with Pompe Disease, a rare genetic disorder that was likely to reduce her life span to five years at most. Her five-month old brother, Patrick, shared the same disease and its crippling progression. Their father, John Crowley, a freshly minted Harvard MBA graduate, was determined to use his brains and connections to find a cure. He started a family foundation to fund research on Pompe disease and eventually headed a biomedical start-up company with a promising approach. Their outcome was ultimately successful because of a lot of factors: hard-work, determination, love and prayer, and yes, some degree of luck.
