A rare medical condition called progeria – which causes rapid aging in young people – is at the heart of my book 100 DAYS, out next week from FSG/Macmillan.
Don’t know much about progeria? You’re not alone, but that’s where Progeria Research Foundation (PRF) comes in. They’re a dedicated group of people whose mission is “to discover treatments and the cure for Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome and its aging-related disorders, including heart disease.”
The PRF website has a wealth of information about all the ways progeria research can benefit not only kids who struggle with the condition but, potentially, the rest of us as well.
Check them out today, and learn how you can join the fight for a cure.
