Another example of being motivated by a tragedy is found in the movie Lorenzo’s Oil. Also based on a true story, Augusto and Michaela Odone made a significant contribution to adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) research after their only child was diagnosed with this rare and terminal disease. Although the stories are fictional, the Free Willy series raised awareness for the plight of a killer whale being kept in captivity.
