Just before his passing on January 10, 2014, Sam Berns was a Junior at Foxboro High School in Foxboro, Massachusetts, where he achieved highest honors and was a percussion section leader in the high school marching band. He also achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. Sam was diagnosed with Progeria, a rare, rapid aging disease, at the age of 2. He is featured in the Emmy award-winning documentary Life According to Sam, which premiered on HBO on October 21, 2013, 2 days before his 17th birthday.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Too bad he’s gone now. It’s really sad. Luckily, he lived 4 years longer than most people with Progeria do. He was an awesome person! Rest In Peace.

Is it possible to miss someone you've never met? Apparently, it is. What an amazing person Sam Berns was. And only 17.

This man was a great man, there is two things, physically he helped me overcome my fear of the existence of progeria, and mentally, he's inspirational. He truly did with just this speech inspire me to want to change my life in a sense, thank you, Sam Berns, if you ever see this in the afterlife.

Sam Berns inspiration to world and to me, teaches that TIME is all we have WISDOM what we do with it! This gentleman inspired me to start my own youtube channel and to try to come out of my depression we are shelter in place the police comes by our building every 1/2 hour and we can't enjoy Nature and ground ourselves in the sand to get the energy needed to survive this crisis and the Ocean is advancing in the last 3 days Earthquakes did not stop since the big one on Jan,7,2020, Hurricane Maria still lingers in our minds and is visible in the buildings and roads, but only Sam Berns can make you see that "Only the darkest night can bring the brightest stars"....Can you see it?
