Advisory – Monday, January 13, 2014

 

On behalf of the Berns family, The Progeria Research Foundation thanks those who knew or were inspired by Sam Berns for their outpouring of support following his passing away on Friday. The messages, stories and tributes in Sam’s honor will vastly contribute to his legacy of courage and hope for years to come. The remarkable response expressed over the past two days makes it clear that Sam has touched many lives.

What he has taught all of us can be best summed up by what he shared at the TEDxMidAtlantic event in October 2013:

“Being brave isn’t supposed to be easy, but for me, it is the key way to keep moving forward.”

Friends, family and the public are invited to funeral services to be held on Tuesday, January 14 at 10:30 a.m. at Temple Israel, 125 Pond Street, Sharon, Massachusetts. No cameras, recordings, press, or reporting during the service please. Please check www.tisharon.org or www.brezniakrodman.com to confirm location of services.

Remembrances may be made to The Progeria Research Foundation, P.O. Box 3453, Peabody, MA  01961-3453, www.progeriaresearch.org.

While the family is quite moved by the public response, they wish to maintain their privacy during this difficult time.  All media inquiries should be directed to Frannie Marmorstein, fmarmorstein@spectrumscience.com, 202-587-2536, or Megan Lustig, mlustig@spectrumscience.com, 202-587-2586.
