UK girl Ashanti Elliott-Smith Ages 8 Times Faster (19 pics)
A 7-year-old UK girl Ashanti Elliott-Smith, ages 8 times faster than normal.
She has Progeria Syndrome, a very rare genetic disorder that has reduced her life expectancy to 13.
It means Ashanti will have a body of an 80-year-old when she is 10.
Her parents don't talk to her about the prognosis.
If other children stare at her, Ashanti just smiles and says 'It's because I'm beautiful'.
