I'd like it if some major scientific breakthrough came out of this. I'd love to just not age, but obviously from this point instead of from a baby.

I'm guessing Roger is not from America but rather from a country where 16 is legal.  I think 16 is legal in England, maybe Australia and New Zealand as well, but I'm not sure. 

16 is indeed the legal age in New Zealand.

Brain tumors, stroke, and surgery after surgery? Damn, she's got a healing factor that puts Wolverine to shame. Thank god she doesn't have claws protruding from her knuckles.

Indeed - can you imagine toddler Wolverine?  I think anyone who's ever seen a toddler knows that's a recipe for a bad time.

I remember reading in a medical journal about a condition where a person ages too fast (thus they get all wrinkly and old looking at around 10 years old) and cuts their life span short, but this is the first time I've heard of something like this. Apparently it can go both ways.

Yeah progeria is even creepier. Must be really terrible for parents knowing that your kid is condemned :s

I wonder how long that girl in this case will live though. If she gets past 20 or even 30, that'd be completely crazy.

I'm a little person and I've seen kids suffering from Progeria at Little People of America conventions.

What's sad about Progeria is mentally they ARE kids. They run around with their friends, play, etc, but they're physically OLD. Most don't even make it past their mid-teens. Just sad.

As to the little girl herself, I've never seen anything like that before. The article didn't go too much on what ages and what doesn't, did it? I'm curious.

I'm down for immortality.  Doubt they'll extract that much information from the kid though.
