The Woman Who Ages Too Fast | BORN DIFFERENT
A WOMAN from Ohio with rapid aging disease has been told she is one in 50 million. Tiffany Wedekind, 41, was diagnosed with progeria when she was in her late twenties. Her brother, Chad, who was also diagnosed with the illness, passed away from complications related to the disease seven years ago. Tiffany’s case is unique as children are usually diagnosed with progeria in their first two years of life, and tend to not live past adolescence.
