@aussieguy29: I think her plan to become a beauty therapist is a great idea. It would be inspiring to her clients, and not in a physical beauty way, but in an inner beauty way.

@all the folks with the drinking age comments:
It would be somewhat of a bummer for her with people wanting to be her friend for all the wrong reasons.

Wow, I`d love to try that the other way. I mean... If I found a little old lady who`s like 75 and I take her to the bus and try to buy her a childs fair ticket. Now when the busdriver starts laughing I`ll go bananas and yell at him that the granny has got this disease and she`s really 8. I wonder if it`ll work...

It looks like her Mom has the same condition. The girl is about 15 but looks 40, the mom is about 45 but looks 70.

The subtitles were necessary for people who can`t understand their accents. Sometimes I wish southerners had subtitles...

I feel so bad for the poor girl, though. At least it won`t be quite as noticeable when she grows up. I am probably going to be a hunchback someday because of a disease I have and probably walk with assistance of some sort, but it can be slowed down and might not ever happen, but I can`t imagine being a child and having something "different" like that. Kids are brutal.

There`s a guy that lives in my town with that. He didn`t quit school though, everyone was his friend. Hell we still are, he just lives a normal life.

Maybe it`s just me, but her face doesn`t look THAT bad. I mean it`s terrible for a thirteen-year-old to look like that, but I personally wouldn`t notice anything unless someone blatantly told me her age.

It makes sense she was bullied in school because she looks older. But why is she stared outside? People would just see her as a normal middle-aged woman.

I don`t see why people would stare at her on the streets. At least not strangers. To anyone else, she would just seem like an older woman.

"SOMETIMES children are conceived when the parents weren`t trying for one?"

But I thought abstinence only teach was doing so well, right? right?

Now that she`s taller people shouldn`t stare as much. Except if she wears extremely trendy clothes then people will stare and the dozy old cow trying to hang onto her youth.

She`s beautiful. Very sad.

And really? Were the subtitles that big of a deal? I need subtitles for some American accents. Ever tried having a conversation with someone from deep Louisiana?

I think that if that girl didn`t have that disease, she would be one of the most beautiful girls of the school. She look great to be honest, only wrinkles around her mouth.
I can`t imagine how people would stare at her... It doesn`t look that bad?

Never mind the stigma of her illness, the news channel are implying she can`t speak English,by using subtitles. And she`s English. Americans really do struggle with the very basics of life.

The best example of how this disease makes her life pooty is that the bus driver didn`t believe she was young because she looks old because of her disease that makes her look older?

Is she drating serious?

All this talk about it being selfish to have kids when you have a genetic disorder is idiotic. Has it occurred to you guys that SOMETIMES children are conceived when the parents weren`t trying for one?

agree with Rick S about the caption, This is a rare disease, and is even rarer for it to affect a portion of your body, in her case the face. There was a movie a while back with Robin Williams where he grew fast and appeared 40 and was only 13. In that movie it was his whole body that they said was growing, In this poor girl its just the face. If shes 13 at the moment and has a face of a 48 y/o , Then when she is 26 she should still have kept the figure and skin will still be fresh all except her face which will age faster than your fingernails growing. Its crazy, but theres no cure for it. Edana42 I agree, Ive always said to myself if I was going to have a kid I wanted to get gene`s tested and make sure everything will be fine. Her mother looks like shes had one to many.

I`m at a loss. If you know you have the genetic traits for a horrid disease, why do you have kids. Isn`t that selfish?

Look at the bright side, at least she will be popular for the next 7 years since she should have no problem at all buying alcohol for everyone.

Does anyone know what the effect is on the rest of her body`s skin? Does it just affect the fatty tissue in the face, or was that just the focus of the piece because it`s what`s apparent to the public?
