Storyboard Text

  • I'm sorry sir, but your baby will be just fine. Don't worry.
  • Oh! Here he comes now, the man of hour, Eugene. His wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and today was her first check up. But what he doesn't know is that his daughter, Cynthia, has PKU.
  • Wait, inherited? Does that mean-
  • No, it must have just been a birth defect. I would never cheat.
  • PKU is an inherited disorder that will need to be watched over.
  • He speaks with the Doctor and there the Doc tells him that there's a problem with his baby. Cynthia has Phenylketonuria, PKU. It's a rare inherited disorder that causes an amino acid to build up in your body.
  • How's my pretty girl?
  • Eugene is terribly worried about his wife and daughter.
  • With the right diet and self-care, Cynthia will be just fine. There's no treatment for PKU, but she can eat a low protein diet and be able to live a normal life.
  • Little does Eugene know, that Lola did cheat. That's why Cynthia has PKU.
  • It's three years later and Cynthia is a happy baby who's just turned three. She's eating the proper diet and has a bright future ahead of her.
  • Cynthia may not understand now, but she knows there's a reason why she can't eat certain foods. One day, she'll understand. But for now, she cries because she can't have cheese (non mozzarella) and her dad is an idiot.
