Our beautiful princess Adalia Rose has been battling Progeria all her life. Progeria is a rare genetic condition that produces rapid aging in children. Symptoms include: growth failure during the first year of life; narrow faces, loss of eyebrows, eyelashes and baldness. Barbara Walters recently did a special on 20/20 about Progeria. If you haven't seen it, check it out on!

Adalia Rose has her own share of medical expenses and endures aggressive physical therapy but that's not what this post is about. She's got that part down solid - shes a courageous little girl who never, ever gives up.

What her heart truly desires is a "real" wig. Adalia loves to play dress up and with a regular synthetic wig, you can't style it and it doesn't feel natural. Adalia used to have hair as an infant but because of the disease it causes hair loss, and at only 5 years old, she knows the difference between fake and the real thing! Adalia's mother, Natalia is determined to shave her own head just like her daughters. She is not only willing- but she's excited to become bald with her babygirl and plans to send her locks to "Caring and Comfort" to create a personalized wig for Adalia. The only thing between her and this vision is the cost of a human hair wig = $1,700. To weave every strand of human hair is an expensive process.

There is no limit to how much you can donate and we thank you so much for your generosity. All monies in excess our of goal will go to 1) the processing fee from this site and 2) The Progeria Research Foundation, where they are working passionately toward a cure.
Please brighten up Adalia's life - we ask you to donate as little as $1. Surely we can gather 2,500 people who can give $1 and a comment of encouragement. We ask the world to help Adalia Rose to not get just anyones wig, but a wig from her mothers love that runs as deep as the ocean blue =)

I'm sure you want to know more about Adalia Rose, we've included tons of her pictures to the left. Caution, she's got a spunky spirit that may cause you smile uncontrollably =D You might even take pointers from her! Add her friend her on Facebook using the link on the left - she loves to have new friends and support from all those who adore her.

Thank you so much for reading and we'll post pictures of her moms wig, stunningly modeled on Adalia Rose as soon as we reach this goal. Have a great day!
