Three years ago, Hayley Okines was part of a documentary chronicling her genetic condition that caused her to age prematurely. She suffered from progeria, a rare disease that ages the body eight times its normal rate.
Yesterday, the 17-year-old sadly passed away in the arms of her mother Kerry Okines, who posted on Facebook last night:
"My baby girl has gone somewhere better. She took her last breath in my arms at 9.39pm x."
Hayley became well known after she starred in World's Oldest Teenager: Extraordinary People, where at 17 years old, she had the body of a 105-year-old. Kerry spoke about the hell of living with her daughter's disease in a 2013 interview
