1. Sam Berns:
This poor kid is one of the few unlucky children who are affected by progeria. Remember Brad Pitt’s movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” that story was inspired by life of kid’s like Sam Berns. This kid gained popularity when his paediatricians parents made an appeal to fight their son’s illness. A Progeria Research Foundation was founded by them which created awareness using Sam’s story. After HBO’s documentary “Life According to Sam.” and his appearance on TED made him a celebrity. Unfortunately he passed in 2014 at the age of 17.
