RIP Sam Berns

Sam Berns, at only 17, died of old age. He died from progeria syndrome, a genetic disorder.
“All in all, I don’t waste energy feeling bad for myself. I surround myself with people that I want to be with. And I keep moving forward.” - Sam Berns 
“You’re a different person after you meet Sam for the first time,” John Seng, a Progeria Research Foundation board member told the Boston Herald. “We go through every day worrying about traffic jams and why the Internet is so slow, yet, here is Sam Berns, carrying on with his life. He didn't want people to feel sorry for him, he said he was happy and he meant it.”
