Progeria is a rare, fatal, “rapid-aging” condition that afflicts children who, without treatment, die of heart disease at an average age of 14 ½ years. The Progeria ResearchFoundation's mission is to discover treatments and the cure for Progeria and its aging related disorders, including heart disease. PRF is the only organization in the world solely dedicated to this undertaking.
