Shortly after Taylor was diagnosed with Batten disease in the summer of ’06, my mom bought a box full of copies of The Cure, the bestselling book about John Crowley and his fight to save his children from a fatal disease. She gave copies of the book to friends and asked them to fight with her. And from that simple act, Taylor’s Tale was born.
Now, the Crowleys’ amazing story will be told on the big screen. Extraordinary Measures, starring Harrison Ford, Brendan Fraser and Keri Russell, opens on Friday, January 22. If you’ve supported Taylor’s Tale and/or followed our story over the past three-and-a-half years, please consider going to see the movie with friends and using it to help share the story of our own journey and fight for a cure for Batten disease.
You can also help support Batten disease research by visiting the movie’s website and casting a vote in support of a video posted by another family who has two children fighting the disease. Click here to visit the Inspirational Quilt and type ‘noah’ in the search box to watch the video. You can vote every day! Thanks in advance for supporting this special family and the quest they share with Taylor’s Tale and our family to find a cure for Batten disease.
