Raising Awareness on Rare and Chronic Diseases

Carly’s mantra is “tiny but awesome,” and it’s true in EVERYTHING she does. She is just one of 17 kids living with progeria in the U.S.

Progeria is an extremely rare genetic condition that causes her to age eight to 10 years each year. Children with progeria have a small stature, shorter life spans, and experience heart disease and stroke, along with other conditions typically associated with the average aging public, occurring as early as 6, versus 70 or 80 years of age.

You can change kids’ health and change the future for kids like Carly.
