Shortly after his diagnosis, his parents died in a fatal car crash. Rory was taken in by his grandparents who expected him to go through a tough time. But once he stepped into their home, he became very calm and collected.
It turns out he was exposed to the rosemary essential oil that was used as an air freshener around the house.
From that day onwards, his grandparents received new surprises every single day. Once, Rory’s grandmother caught him reading a medical encyclopedia, understanding and picking up the information with ease. And as Rory prepared for his SAT, his grandfather noticed his laser focus.
Even more astonishing, he memorized 1000 SAT vocabulary words in one day and recited it to them with perfect recollection.
Intrigued, his grandparents had him take the practice test and to their amazement, he completed it with a near-perfect score!
