We are deeply saddened to learn that TEDxMidAtlantic speaker Sam Berns passed away Saturday night at age 17. Sam had progeria, a rare rapid aging disease that affects approximately one out of four to eight million children.
Above, moments from Sam’s TEDxMidAtlantic talk, in which he shares his advice for living happily, no matter the challenges. Sam’s talk displays his great courage, infectious positivity, and wisdom beyond his years. He will be missed.

’12 shoes for 12 shoes’ will exhibit at the pop-up shop of Brazilian shoe brand Melissa from December 6th, 2013 to January 6th, 2014 for Art Basel Miami Beach 2013.
