Dr. Stephen Fletcher is a beloved and well-known pediatric neurosurgeon, he’s also a devoted grandfather. Dr. Fletcher is now working tirelessly to save his most precious patient, his 8-year-old granddaughter, Caroline. Caroline, a twin, has a very rare neurodegenerative disease. The disease closely mimics one called Charcot-Marie-Tooth. Caroline's genetic mutation causes her muscles to atrophy all over.

Dr. Fletcher, along with a team of scientist, geneticists, and doctors have developed a cure for Caroline and possible treatment for over 2.8 million other patients.

The Fletcher family now needs funds. They need $2.6 million for funding the next phase of development for the treatment that could reverse Caroline’s rare disease and help others.
