Vance. Being filmed in Portland, Oregon, this drama is based on the book, "The Cure," by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Geeta Anand. It tells the story of John Crowley and how he built a company to try to find a cure for Pompe disease after two of his three children were diagnosed with it.

OMG!!! They’re in the hospital that I work in right now! They’re taking all our signs off and making it a “Portland Rose Hospital” and they’re covering all the windows because I guess it’s a night scene. This is too cool!!!
