I am an avid podcast listener.  A few months back, I found out that I had been missing out on The Tim Ferriss Show.  In episode #225: John Crowley – The Real-Life Captain America and Bruce Banner (Seriously) Tim interviews John Crowley, the Chairman and CEO of Amicus Therapeutics.  While this interview is so amazing on so many levels – one story caught my attention.  The story of Chris Greicius, who was the young boy who inspired what is now known as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, of which John previously was on the board.

Chris, who always wanted to be a police officer was given that opportunity.  Two days later he passed away, and was then, in turn, given a Police funeral.  The video is below – it’s amazing.

John also shared the story of his children, one of which, Megan, just started her own blog about her life journey.  Visit High Heeled Wheels when you have time.
