    8-year-old never ages, could reveal 'biological immortality'

    http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news...al-immortality

    BILLINGS, Mont. - Gabby Williams has the facial features and skin of a newborn, and she is just as dependent. Her mother feeds, diapers and cradles her tiny frame as she did the day she was born.

    The little girl from Billings, Mont., is 8 years old, but weighs only 11 pounds. Gabby has a mysterious condition, shared by only a handful of others in the world, that slows her rate of aging.

    For the past two years, a doctor who has been trying to find the genetic off-switch to stop the aging process has been studying Gabby, as well as two other people who have striking similarities.........

    She doesn't function as an 8 year old.
    Seems this "immortality" comes with a steep price.
    Just my opinion

    Almost every story I see with immortality, it was a curse.
