Short Introduction: 
In the year 2012, a cancer epidemic spread around the world killing millions. Traditional forms of treatment didn’t work against the cancer cells as the cancer thrived on all the known treatments. It was soon discovered that the disease itself was the result of 3 distinct colonies of cells fighting for resources of healthy human cells. The cells were nicknamed ‘skunks’, ‘punks’ and ‘monks’ for their distinct characteristics. Brilliant scientists from Vancouver, BC discovered that a genetically engineered virus could target the cancer cells.
