Mission

To discover treatments and the cure for Progeria and its aging-related disorders, including heart disease.

Progeria is an ultra-rare, fatal, “rapid-aging” disease that afflicts children who, without the FDA-approved treatment lonafarnib, die of heart disease at an average age of 14.5 years. PRF is the only non-profit organization solely dedicated to finding treatments and the cure for Progeria, and is making phenomenal progress toward that goal.
