There are many people whom we come across in our life, but sometimes there comes a person and changes everything in your life from your lifestyle to your perspective of seeing things. In a nutshell, you are not that person you used to be anymore.

Here is an inspiring story of famous weightlifter David Douglas, known as 'The Beast' and his 12-year-old friend Lindsay Ratcliffe, who is fighting with one of the rarest genetic disease known as Progeria, where the patient's body ages 8-10 times faster than normal people. But, believe me, that has hardly to do anything with their friendship and the beautiful bond they share. Lindsay has turned out to be the biggest strength of David.
