Meghan Waldron is 15 years old, runs track for her high school, plays in the school orchestra and is working on a novel. She is remarkable in many ways. One way is that she has progeria, a condition so rare only about 300 kids in the world have it; few are expected to live past their 20th birthday--unless promising new treatments are found. Waldron recently completed her first book, a children's book called Running on the Wind about a bird born under a rock that doesn't learn to fly but instead to run. The book was published by The Red Fred Project, a nonprofit publishing company that helps "children who live in extraordinary circumstances" like Waldron's to create a children's book that will both serve as an adult-like achievement to bring a sense of fulfillment to their lives and as a lasting legacy, evidence that their short lives mattered. The company has now published ten books, is working on an 11th and on a plan to publish many more in the future. Read the full Forbes article and watch the interview here: http://bit.ly/2yhdosB.
