David Douglas - Facebook

David “The Beast” Douglas is a very strong guy in more ways than one, but he says his best friend, Lindsay Ratcliffe, is even stronger.

Lindsay suffers from a rare genetic disorder known as progeria: it’s a disease that causes children to age 8-10 times faster than normal and leaves them with an average lifespan of 13 years.

However, according to Douglas, one would never think that Lindsay – already 12-years-old – is struggling because of the way she’s always smiling.

Douglas, a motivational speaker, weightlifter, and former marine, has found inspiration in the little trooper he calls his “little sis”.
