I recently came across a few webpages that are bullying a girl because she has a disease. This girl, Named Adalia Rose has Progeria. Progeria (also known as "Hutchinson–Gilford Progeria Syndrome" "Hutchinson–Gilford syndrome" and "Progeria syndrome") is an extremely rare genetic disease wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at an early age. The word progeria comes from the Greek words "pro" (πρό), meaning "before", and "géras" (γῆρας), meaning "old age". The disorder has very low incidences and occurs in an estimated 1 per 8 million live births Those born with progeria typically live to their mid teens and early twenties. It is a genetic condition that occurs as a new mutation (de novo), and is rarely inherited. Although the term progeria applies strictly speaking to all diseases characterized by premature aging symptoms, and is often used as such, it is often applied specifically in reference to Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS). (TAKEN FROM WIKIPEDIA). People have made pages on Facebook bullying, makig fun of and harassing this poor girl! I reported all of the pages that I know about to Facebook and this is what they said:
