Thank you Hayden for making a difference in the lives of children with Progeria! And what a terrific note from his mom.
“Hayden is 9 years old and a huge New England sports fan. He saw a Bruins game on TV in November that featured Sam Berns talking with the Bruins commentators. Hayden was very moved by Sam's confidence, bravery and positive attitude. Hayden first just asked if we could do the $10 text for Progeria but then after that wanted to do more. He made 30 rubber band bracelets on his rainbow loom that he gave to family at Thanksgiving. In return they gave him donations that we sent to your foundation.
Sam is a truly inspirational young man and I'm so proud of Hayden for being inspired and committed to his goal of sending in his donation. Thank you for the work you do to help find a cure for Progeria!” ~Allison, Hayden’s proud Mom
Many thanks to Owen and the "Friends of Sam" in Foxborough, MA who held a huge bake sale/fundraiser on January 19th, raising just over $5,000 for PRF!
We are overwhelmed with gratitude to all of the 'Kids Helping Kids'!
