Like Analise last night I happened to catch the 60-minutes segment on Progeria. I wasn’t paying much attention at all to the game of Scrabble I was meant to be playing. I have seen similar programs before with the same girl being interviewed. I find medical stories like those of Progeria utterly fascinating, and it (Above so much else – perhaps disproportionately, perhaps not) pushes hard on the compassion buttons, while at the same time really inspiring me.
It is things like this that make me wish I’d had the determination to follow through with that half inspiration of becoming a doctor… whenever that was, once upon a time.

There is no cure yet but they have a genetic lead – and are only waiting on the funding to follow through with that.
Tag to Rodney Olsen, to talk about Progeria (If I can do that?)
