Dr. Leslie Gordon, PRF’s Medical Director: “My Recipe for Success”
TedX Charlottesville, November 2013
The lessons of this lecture are powerful and inspiring. Sharing her “Secret Sauce” for making anything possible, Dr. Gordon urges audience members to apply a version of this secret sauce to their own personal obstacles. Her ingredients are a reflection of all that PRF has, and will, accomplish.
Sam Berns: “My Philosophy for a Happy Life”
TEDxMidAtlantic, October 2013
This wildly popular talk has been viewed by over 4 million people. Sam, the inspiration behind PRF’s creation, passed away in January 2014. He left behind a legacy through Life According to Sam and this talk, encouraging everyone not to let obstacles stop them from following their dreams. People all over the world – celebrities, professional athletes, corporate leaders, and others from all walks of life – were deeply affected by Sam’s words and example to live life to its fullest. As Sam now famously says in his talk, "Being brave isn't supposed to be easy - but for me, it's the key way to keep moving forward." We agree, as we move forward to finish what we started: Together, we WILL find the cure for Progeria.
