Meet The Brave 18-Yr-Old Girl That Looks 70 Due To Rare Genetic Disorder - Ontlametse Phalatse

Ontlametse Phalatse is challenging the medical community and defying the odds one day at a time.

The South African young woman with progeria, a rare accelerated aging disease, has become an inspiration to many people around the world with her positive perspective and sunny personality.

She gave herself the loving nickname “First Lady” because she is the first documented black individual with the genetic condition.

According to the Progeria Research Foundation, there are only two known cases of African children with progeria and Ontlametse is one of them.

Doctors gave her a life expectancy of 13 years, but today at 18, this warrior is proving them all wrong.
