14-year-old Hayley Okines has co-written a book about her experience of living with Progeria. We talk to her mother about their story so far…

Kerry Okines’ daughter, Hayley, suffers from Hutchinson Gilford Progeria Syndrome. This condition means that she ages about eight times faster than the average person. I asked Kerry about the work both she and Hayley do to raise awareness of the condition and the progress that they have already made. Despite being told she would probably not make it past her thirteenth year, Hayley is fast approaching her fifteenth birthday. As well as taking part in drug trials, being the subject of articles and documentaries and getting on with life as a 14-year-old, Hayley has co-written a book with her mother.
