Meet Zach...he is a vibrant and joyful 8 year old little boy from Kentucky who is among a very small number of children throughout the entire world (21!) living with Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome, which is an extremely rare and fatally rapid aging syndrome. At the young age of 8, Zach has endured more medically than most adults do in a lifetime. Constant monitoring of his health with daily medication, routine testing and comprehensive physicals all help track the effects of Progeria on his small body.  Read more HERE.
