Sam Berns, Progeria Patient and Activist, Dies at Age 17

January 11, 2014

Our thoughts go out to the family of Sam Berns who passed away today. Many knew the young Progeria patient from the HBO documentary, “Life According to Sam.”

We at Global Genes are deeply grateful for the accomplishments of the entire Berns family in spreading awareness and hope about rare disease.

You can make a donation to the Progeria Research Foundation in Sam’s honor on their website.
