Storyboard Text

  • Hey honey how was school
  • Its okay but we should probably have a doctor check it out.
  • Not so good, I'm the shortest one in my class and I'm bald.
  • Oh but I still want to go today
  • Are you sure mom Ive never been to the doctors before
  • People say that you should go every year for a check up on your health but I only think its necessary when you're sick or don't feel well.
  • Ok
  • You are really short for your age and you seem to be losing your hair.  This sounds like you might have a disease called Progeria. Progeria will make you start to age very quickly. But let's run some tests to make sure.
  • After running some tests it turns out that you do have Progeria. This is a very rare disease, only 80 children have ever had it in the world.
  • Can we do anything about it?
  • Most kids who have this disease don't live past 13. But that's also because we catch it very early. But you are very lucky because most of the cases would have killed you because you never came to get your yearly checkup.  But, there is a drug called farnesyltransferase inhibitors which will help alleviate the symptoms.
  • So remember always go to your yearly check ups.
  • Okay, from now on I will always go.
