Little butterfly buckles swinging from her pigtails as she laughed and danced with her daddy.

Like a thief in the night, her life was stolen.

The disease was rare, and incurable, and hopeless. A life of constant pain.

Her daddy was a scientist who vowed to devote entire his life to find a cure. he would risk everything to succeed, including his reputation and even his life.

When Jonathan Berrier began his experiments, he did it for all the right reasons. Things would eventually change.
