His birth certificate says 16, his looks say 76, but either way you cut it Sam Berns’ story has inspired America in a major way.
You see, Sam has progeria, a very rare disease that causes the body to age. Only 200-250 children are living today in the world and it causes the body to age 8 times faster than normal. It’s caused by 1 single change in DNA.
Sam was given 13 years to live, but he is beating the odds, and in a new film he is inspiring the world! Check out a profile on him below and share his story with your friends and family!
UPDATE: Unfortunately Sam has passed away but not before inspiring the world.
