Young parents Fred and Vicki Modell are overjoyed by the arrival of their first child, a perfect baby boy they name Jeffrey. But just months later, it becomes clear that something’s wrong. Jeffrey is diagnosed with a rare disease that leaves him frequently sick and perilously susceptible to even the most common cold. He begs his parents to ‘do something’ and though they desperately try, Jeffrey ultimately succumbs to his illness at the age of 15. Out of their devastating loss, Fred and Vicki turn to their enduring love for each other to find the strength to fulfill their promise to Jeffrey and they resolve to ‘do something.’ With just $500 in the bank, the couple sets out in search for answers and what took his life. Guided by Jeffrey’s memory and the hope to help just one child, Fred and Vicki turn pain into purpose and end up touching the lives of parents and children all across the world. Millions of lives have been forever changed because of Fred and Vicki's determination to ‘do something.’
