In the photo below, they may look like opposites but they are BFFs. There’s a huge powerlifter and motivational speaker David Douglas who is nicknamed “The Beast.” Next to him in the photo is petite Lindsay Ratcliffe, who suffers from progeria, a rare genetic disorder that causes children to appear to age rapidly. How did these two become so close friends? This story will melt your heart and hopefully inspire you.
“People looked at me as strong when everything about her was stronger.”
Big big brother, little sister.
