Sam Berns, a Massachusetts teen diagnosed with Progeria, a rare disease that problems created from the condition range from loss of body hair and fat, allowing little to no weight gain, to osteoporosis and weakened and brittle bones, recently passed away from complications stemming from his condition.

Here is an incredible interview on how he views life and how we should be happy no matter what.
