Butterfly Boy's Skin Falls Off With The Slightest Touch
Subscribe: bit.ly/Oc61Hj

MOST teenage boys love to run around and play – but ‘Butterfly Boy’ Jonathan’s skin is so delicate it falls away at the slightest knock. Fourteen year-old Jonathan Pitre, from Russell, Canada, lives in constant pain as 90% of his skin blisters and peels from his body - making it look as if he has third degree burns. The excruciating pain is so bad he has constant headaches and nausea, and often spends nights awake in agony. Helpless mum Tina Boileau, 35, has to watch her son writhe in pain as she wraps him from head to toe in bandages to ensure he doesn’t get infections.

More inspirational stories like Jonathan's feature in the new series of Body Bizarre, Thursdays at 9pm on TLC.
