Progeria, also known as Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS), is an extremely rare genetic condition of accelerated ageing in children.
Usually, within the first year of life, the growth of a child with Progeria slows markedly, but motor development and intelligence remain normal. Despite significant physical changes in their young bodies, these extraordinary children are intelligent, courageous, and full of life.
Progeria occurs in an estimated 1 per 20 million worldwide. Enzo is the only case known to be living with Progeria in Australia.
This page is dedicated to sharing knowledge about Progeria and providing updates on how Enzo is bravely overcoming the challenges of living with Progeria.
