Lumina grants Progeria victim’s wish to have own home

Lines and wrinkles here, sags and bags there – when we start to see the early signs of aging, most of us immediately turn to anti-aging creams and make-up products to make ourselves look younger. But what if, no matter how many products you use, you still cannot delay your aging? Such is the case of Ana Rochelle Pondare.

She started to seek the help of cosmetic products when she was only 8 years old but was reduced because what she has is a rare genetic condition called progeria characterized by dramatic and rapid aging.

Rochelle, knowing that progeria victims only live at an average of 14 years, is frightened every time her birthday comes. The supposed-to-be joyous occasion for her was a struggle, a battle for her life. But even though Rochelle is anxious every time, she always exudes a positive outlook in life. This happy-go-lucky girl makes sure that nothing, even her disease, can hinder from chasing her dreams.

With her optimism and tough spirit, Rochelle miraculously made it to her 18th year. This young lady may have the body of a 108-year-old now, but her will is definitely stronger than her failing physique.

Rated K throws birthday celebration for Rochelle Pondare

Touched by Rochelle’s story of hope and optimism, Rated K, a top-rating magazine program, gave Rochelle the most memorable 18th birthday party. And to make this wonderful occasion even more special, Rated K granted Rochelle’s wish to get the home her family has been longing for.

Hence, last June 21, 2015, the key to a brand new single-storey Lumina Home was handed to her.

Her siblings can now enjoy a more fun play time in Lumina’s mini-gardens and playground. They can also celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions in Lumina’s multi-purpose hall.

Finally, they will be able to feel a sense of belongingness in a community and Rochelle, most especially, will be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle despite her illness.
