Hayley Okines, 14, On BBC Breakfast

March 22, 2012

Hayley Okines is 14-years-old, but a rare genetic condition called progeria means she ages eight times faster than the average person.

In medical terms her body is that of a 100-year-old woman.

But BBC Breakfast heard that Hayley faces her condition with immense courage, and that she, along with her mum, has documented her unusual life in a book.
