So Much So Fast

When asked what he would do differently in the five years since his ALS diagnosis, Stephen Heywood replied, "Have more sex on film. " What would you do if at 29 you only have a few years to live? So Much So Fast is about the remarkable events set in motion when Stephen Heywood discovered he had the paralyzing neural disorder ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Over 5 years, Oscar nominees Steven Ascher and Jeanne Jordan track one family’s ferocious response to an orphan disease: the kind of disease drug companies ignore because not there’s not enough profit in curing it. With no medical background, Stephen’s brother Jamie creates a guerilla-science research group and in two years builds it from three people in a basement to a multi-million dollar ALS mouse facility, the largest anywhere. Finding a drug in time becomes Jamie’s obsession.
