WE'LL MISS YOU SAM BERNS
January 15, 2014

It is with great sadness that I report our friend Sam Berns passed away last Friday. He will forever remain an inspiration to me and the many other lives he touched. I was always happy to see Sam, he was always so upbeat and positive. I encourage you all to learn more about Sam and Progeria, which also took the life of my beautiful sister Amy.

Visit the Progeria Research Foundation page or watch the HBO documentary "Life According to Sam" to learn more about Sam, as well as the advances made in the treatment of Progeria. Sam's parents Dr. Leslie Gordon and Dr. Scott Berns, created the Progeria Research Foundation in 1999.

God Bless you Sam. You will live in our hearts forever.
