THE STORY:

My son Lucas born with rare aging disease. Most kids are in a hurry to grow up, But my little boy 12-year-old is growing older with no choice. He has a big personality, is one of only 80 children in the world diagnosed with progeria, a premature aging condition. He's also the first black child with the fatal genetic condition. Children with progeria are born looking healthy, but soon display characteristics of accelerated aging, such as failure to grow, stiff joints and loss of body fat and hair. What's it like to live with this difficult reality in our family ? Every day we try to do the best for our son , even with all financial problems that we have, in our poverty . The love we feel for him is immense and we want to help him to live long experience in a short timing of life , something that can make him happy every minute , because with this disease, the remedies cause to him too depression. We ask for your donation to buy medicines and so we can try to give a decent life to our son until his last day. Thank you for your generosity. Adauto
