Opening a Corrupted PDF

I have a PDF that is unfortunately corrupted. I can open the first 11 pages but the last 4 are lost. So far I've tried Acrobat Reader (didn't open), gmail viewer (opened 11 pages), PDF Touch (opened 11 pages), pdf merger pro (gave an error on recovery), Recovery Toolbox for PDF (said that it fixed 7 errors but would only show me the first page b/c it was a trial).
Any PDF pros out there have an idea what to do next? The PDF is attached. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the suggestion! It opened the 11 pages again, not the last 4.

FYI - Acrobat X Pro won't open the file at all.

Edit -

Did you create the file? With what program?
Or
Did you download/receive the file via email?

It was scanned at school and then emailed. I'm not sure what the program was. It was scanned at a kiosk that did everything automatically.
Don't have access to the original anymore.

I have feeling that the file was never created properly in the first place.

Evince could only open 1 out of 14 pages total. Ran it through some online .PDF repair tools and they recovered the first 3 out of 14 pages. Couldn't get any better results than you already have.
