'Bliss' is named for a little girl, Bliss Daniels, who lost both her brother Rhys and her sister Charly to late infantile Batten's disease, a rare and incurable illness. Bliss is happily free from the disease, as is her new little sister, Hope. Their parents, Barry and Carmen Daniels, are now able to devote themselves to a project to raise money for other parents facing similar situations.
