Shire Pharma says No - won’t save dying 6 year-old February 2, 2014. Mundelein, IL. Six year-old Jack Fowler is dying and Massachusetts-based Shire Pharmaceutical won’t help him. According to Shire CEO Flemming Ornskov, his corporation isn’t in the business of helping people. And that’s a shame. Because an army of doctors, donors, facilities and volunteers have come together to save Jack’s life. But they can’t do it without Shire Pharma.
