Dave Matthews and Sam Team Up to Fight Progeria

Dave Matthews and the Progeria Research Foundation are teaming up to help find a cure for Progeria, a rare genetic disease that causes rapid aging at a very young age.

The PRF will be bringing in 40 new children for a clinical drug trial in hopes of finding a cure. You can help raise the funds for the project by texting PROGERIA to 80888 to donate $10. In addition, from now until October 23, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft will match every donation.

Dave Matthews and Sam, a progeria patient, met at a recent DMB show and filmed a short PSA to raise awareness for the disease. HBO will also debut Life According to Sam on October 21. More information about the documentary can be found here.
