Voyager Therapeutics is a Cambridge, MA biotech company developing gene-based therapies for diseases affecting the Central Nervous System (CNS). They hired LVP to create a portrait series focusing on four people dealing with CNS diseases their therapies target. Peter is a 50 year old athlete and businessman recently diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Grace has been living with Friedreich's Ataxia for over a decade and is now wheelchair bound. Cheryl has been a caretaker for both her husband and daughter, recently lost to Huntington's Disease. Al is the beloved patriarch of a large family and is slowly losing function of his limbs due to ALS. Beyond the diagnoses and physical manifestations, however, these patients are fathers, husbands, mothers, daughters, grandfathers, and beloved humans. They could be us. They could be anyone.
