Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria syndrome is an extremely rare genetic condition which causes physical changes that resemble greatly accelerated aging in sufferers. The disease affects between 1 in 4 million (estimated actual) and 1 in 8 million (reported) newborns. Currently, there are approximately 40-45 known cases in the world. There is no known cure.

After watching the video I read the comments which totally destroyed my faith in humanity. God, why can someone be so rude?! Is it so hard to show some respect to a person who is strong and has a wonderful character? I really didn't expect such hateful comments... are young people tought to hate people who don't look like barbies these days??
