Ignite DC #4

Audrey Spolarich

Count down to a Cure--20 slides- 300 seconds--can I get you?

Maybe Benjamin Button, the movie, was sad, or philosophical or funny or thought provoking, but it certainly was strange. The rapid aging disease in children, called Progeria, is equally--or more--strange.

Will you listen forr 300 seconds as I describe a nearly as strange social media idea for reaching people around the globe with the message of progeria?
