I find this movie full of emotion and and hope. As the saying goes, "There is nothing impossible if you work for it." I didn't know there was Pompe Disease until I watched the movie. I was curious then, so I research what Pompe disease is. It is a rare kind of disease. It is known as an inherited disorder caused by the buildup of complex sugar called GLYCOGEN in the body's cell. If accumulation of glycogen in certain parts of your body, specially muscles, grew rapidly, it will impaired their ability to function normally. Sometimes movies like these are very helpful, it gave us the knowledge that there are other kind of diseases that we should be aware of in order for us to be careful in our health.
