The minute Avi Kremer, 29, finds out that he has only four years to live, he decides to do the impossible and find cure for ALS, the incurable Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (the Lou Gehrig's disease) he has contracted. Avi, an M.B.A. student at Harvard Business School, musters all his business knowhow and sets out on a search for funds, investors and researchers who will join him in his race.
