The Cure

How a Father Raised $100 Million--and Bucked the Medical Establishment--in a Quest to Save His Children

About the Book

“Amazing….Explores human courage under the most trying circumstances.” —New York Post

 

“An inspirational story about business, medical science, and one father’s refusal to give up hope.” —Boston Globe

 

The book that inspired the movie, Extraordinary Measures, starring Harrison Ford, Brendan Fraser, and Keri Russell, The Cure by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Geeta Anand is the remarkable true story of one father’s determination to find a cure for his terminally sick children even if it meant he had to build a business from scratch to do so. At once a riveting story of the birth of an enterprise—ala Tracy Kidder’s The Soul of a New Machine—and a inspiring tale of the indomitable human spirit in the vein of Erin Brockovich and A Civil Action, The Cure is a testament to ingenuity, unflagging will, and unconquerable love.
