English social campaigner, a girl with the extremely rare aging disease called progeria, known as the 100-year-old teenager.
She was known for spreading awareness of the condition. Although the average life expectancy for sufferers is 13 years, Hayley was part of a drug trial that had seen her surpass doctors' predictions of her projected lifespan. However, she died at 9:39pm on 2 April 2015 at the age of 17 (with the body of a 104-year-old) due to complications of pneumonia, having lived four years beyond doctors' initial predictions.
In 1999, at two years old, Okines was diagnosed with progeria, a genetic disease that caused her to age eight times faster than the average person. This put her projected lifespan at thirteen years. She frequently travelled to Boston to receive new treatments in the United States. In 2012, an autobiography of Hayley Okines was published titled "Old Before My Time." The book was co-authored by Hayley Okines, her mother Kerry Okines, and contributor Alison Stokes.
