7-Year-Old Girl with the Body of an Old Woman (19 pics + 1 video)

Ashanti Eliott-Smith is like any other girls of her age, she goes to school, plays with her friends or her puppy, she likes horses and is a fan of Girls Aloud and JLS… But unfortunately, she has a rare incurable condition (Hutchinson–Gilford progeria syndrome) that makes her age faster than other people, 8 times faster to be more precise. This condition is very rare and only 52 persons in the world suffer progeria, with just one other kid in Britain.


Like some grannies, she is bald, has arthritis and has a weakening heart. She is just under 3ft (90cm) and barely weights 2st (13kg). Her parents say the worst part is the staring of people but: "If other children stare at her, Ashanti just smiles and says, 'It's because I'm beautiful.' She is a brave little girl and nothing can get her down. I hope she will have a long life and enjoy each moment of it!It reminds me the stories of another girl and boy with rare diseases that make them look older.

    I don't know anything about progeria syndrome... other than it makes me incredibly sad.

    this girl is happy, look at her eyes! she has such a beautiful smile and she doesn't need any compassion. even though suffering from such a severe condition she is still enjoying her life with people who will be loving her and encompassing her with love and care till the end of her days.
    she might be happier than any of us. beautiful girl heart

    blink she is a brave little girl. you can tell her parents love her. ovbioulsy, the people who say she looks like things from the lord of the rings have no life. they'd rather sit on their asses all day on their computer putting down people who are less fortunate than spend their loves doing things for themselves. they have pthetic lives and try to make up for it by saying crap to people. this girl has a beautiful smile, and she looks like she is happy. thats all that matters, and looks dont. her family loves her. god bles her

    Little Ashanti is happy and so are her parents. Let us give them our support and love. I am happy for her yet I am realistic at the same time and tell myself 'why would a little girl suffer so much like this'..I love their courage and strength.
