So John finds a University of Nebraska scientist by the name of Robert Stonehill (Ford), who has a groundbreaking theory in how to treat the disease.
The problem is, Stonehill doesn't get enough money to put his theory to work, and when it comes time to try to sell his idea, he's shunned for not having sold any of his ideas before. Also, he's a bit of a curmudgeon and a tad crazy.
John works hard to get donations from friends and friends of friends, all to pay Stonehill to get started.
Eventually, Stonehill has to work on his enzyme with a number of conditions he didn't want to sign up for but is reluctantly willing to overlook just to prove his theory is right.
This movie would have been a lot more cinematic had Stonehill been the focus instead of the Crowleys, and John's relationship with Stonehill. Had this been from Stonehill's perspective, this movie would have been a lot more interesting. He's the character you would want to pay to see, he's the guy you want to know more about, he's the guy who could drive a two-hour disease drama out of TV-land and into a fine character study. Eccentric, bad-tempered, smart, unflinching in his views, Stonehill would have been the better choice. Instead, Stonehill is seen from John's point-of-view, something that probably wouldn't have happened had this movie taken place 15 years ago.

When John's daughter Megan (effectively played by Meredith Droeger) almost dies of a respiratory infection, John seeks out reclusive research scientist Robert Stonehill (Ford), and the doctor agrees to join him in the search for a cure. Review Of 'Extraordinary Measures', 23 Jan 2010 [cached]
The best doctor in the country devoted to finding a cure is Robert Stonehill (Ford), a research scientist at the University of Nebraska who's constantly hampered by a severe lack of funding and a bad attitude.
When Crowley travels from his home in Portland, Oregon to Nebraska to force a meeting with Stonehill, he is so desperate that he creates a Pompe-fighting foundation out of thin air and promises the researcher the $500,000 he needs to bring a prospective cure to medical trials.

In real life, Crowley enlisted the help of several scientists, but for simplicity's sake his film incarnation turns only to Dr. Robert Stonehill (Ford), a quirky university researcher who's got a theory about Pompe that's so crazy it just might work.
Shambling, grumpy, and transparently virtuous, Ford's Stonehill is the best drinking buddy you could hope for. As for Fraser, he's aging very nicely out of his chiseled George of the Jungle/The Mummy/Encino Man look.

El único que parece darle esperanzas es el doctor Robert Stonehill (Ford), cuyas poco ortodoxas teorías científicas lo mantienen enfrentado con la comunidad médica internacional.
