                                                                 What is  Progeria ?

        The effects of Progeria.                      


Diagnosed in 1886 Progeria, also known as 'rapid aging disease' and 'HGPS' ,was founded by Dr. Jhonathan Hutchinson and later confirmed by Dr. Hastings Gilford in 1904. 


      Progeria is a rare genetic disorder that effects only one in eight million newborns.


     Progeria is almost always fatal. The life expectancy for a child with progeria is roughly 27 years. Many children with this disorder will develop Atherosclerosis and Chroanary disease. They are also at a greater risk for stroke and alopecia.


     To date there is no known cure for the progerian disesase.

Good start. Remember to cite your sources (picture and information).

Navigating through your pages is easy. You have done a good job remembering to link back to the main page. Now I would like to see more information on each of the pages. You can add details to the description of the disorder. Make sure you organize sections and add captions and headings. I want to see a lot added to this Wednesday so I can help you get the formatting done. This is a very interesting and mysterious disorder. Make your readers want to know more and give them as much information as you can.

You need to add citations and some more writing in your own words. Just linking to other site doesn't fulfill your research.
