The 19-year-old Filipina Rochelle Pondare, who suffers from a rare disease which makes her age eight times more than the normal, already passed away.
The US-based foundation who is currently doing the research on her illness confirmed that Rochelle Pondare died.
Two years before she passed away, the doctors said that the appearance of Pondare is like the appearance of 136-year-old person due to progeria.
"Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the beautiful Ana Rochelle from the Philippines who passed away at the age of 19," said the Progeria Research Foundation (PRF) on Thursday.
No other details were given about the death of Pondare.
The birthday party of Pondare last year was featured on Rated K.
"Rochelle had an unusually happy and hopeful disposition," Sanchez said. "She even got to her debut party. For her 18th birthday she wished she could at least help her mother and leave a home for them behind knowing she could leave them anytime soon."
Most of the patients of progeria die at the age of 14 years old.
"You will be missed Rochelle!" Korina added.
