He tried to gather the money by every measure possible, and got ? of the money required. He then negotiated with a researcher (including an offer to pay the rest later) but the researcher rejected by saying he wants to make money out of it as he developed it. Without the medicine, Heinz’s wife will die for sure very soon.
