About The Progeria Research Foundation
The Progeria Research Foundation (PRF) was established in 1999 to find the cause, treatment, and cure for Progeria – a rapid aging disease that causes children to die from heart disease or stroke at an average age of 13 years. In the past 13 years, research conducted in partnership with PRF has identified the gene that causes Progeria and possible treatments. 

PRF funded and coordinated this first-ever Progeria clinical trial. PRF is currently funding a clinical trial in which children with Progeria receive FTI plus two additional medications to slow the progression of Progeria. PRF continues to identify more children who can benefit from the programs and services that it provides while helping advance research towards treatment and cure.
