Life According to Sam
As a friend of the Progeria Research Foundation, Hologic invites you to watch “Life According to Sam” an HBO Documentary, premiering on Monday, October 21, 2013 at 9 PM on HBO.

“Life According to Sam” explores the remarkable world of Sam Berns, who was diagnosed with Progeria at the age of two, a rare, fatal genetic condition characterized by an appearance of accelerated aging in children, with no cure known to date.

Sam’s and his family’s relentless pursuit of a treatment and a cure for Progeria led them to launch the first-ever clinical drug trial. During the clinical drug trial, the children went through a series of tests, including a bone density exam performed on Hologic’s DXA systems. The children’s bone densities improved through the clinical drug trial, which was critical to its validation.

Now a high-school junior about to turn 17, Sam embraces his circumstances with admirable courage, showing wisdom beyond his years. And we are proud to be part of his journey to find a cure.

Sam is a special friend of Hologic and Jack Cumming had the opportunity to meet him. Click here to see how extraordinary Sam is.
