Franovik gives back to Progeria Charities

In a meeting today with two wonderful thoughtful friends of mine; Franovik decides to give back to PROGERIA SYNDROME.

Progeria (Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome ("Progeria", or "HGPS") is a rare, fatal genetic condition characterized by an appearance of accelerated aging in children. Its name is derived from the Greek and means "prematurely old." While there are different forms of Progeria*, the classic type is Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome, which was named after the doctors who first described it in England; in 1886 by Dr. Jonathan Hutchinson and in 1897 by Dr. Hastings Gilford.

HGPS is caused by a mutation in the gene called LMNA (pronounced, lamin - a). The LMNA gene produces the Lamin A protein, which is the structural scaffolding that holds the nucleus of a cell together. Researchers now believe that the defective Lamin A protein makes the nucleus unstable. That cellular instability appears to lead to the process of premature aging in Progeria.
Although they are born looking healthy, children with Progeria begin to display many characteristics of accelerated aging at around 18-24 months of age. Progeria signs include growth failure, loss of body fat and hair, aged-looking skin, stiffness of joints, hip dislocation, generalized atherosclerosis, cardiovascular (heart) disease and stroke. The children have a remarkably similar appearance, despite differing ethnic backgrounds.

Children with Progeria die of atherosclerosis (heart disease) at an average age of thirteen years.

Progeria has not been in mainstream like other childrens illnesses;when you read about it and see how many actually die from this disease, it needs to supported by everyone.

Remember to save the date: September 28, location and other details to come in the next few days.

Thank you to all our clients, fans, and followers.

After a long last quarter in 2012, where we were involved in two fashion shows back to back with LS1426 and Elements of Green Miami Splash and the very upsetting flop in New York City in early 2013 (that's another story); we decided to let go of the shows for now and concentrate on a celebration.

Save the date on your calendar: September 28, 2013, Franovik gives back to a local South Florida charity on our 5th year anniversary.

This event promises to be the event of all events in 2013. I have 6 months to prepare. I have the concept and writing up all the proposals, letters, flyers and drafts to present to sponsors and local venues.

Everyone will start seeing information on this event very soon. Follow us on all the social sites, like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, MiamiUrbanLife, Blogger, our websites and magzines like Elegant Dreams, Latin Connection, among others.

For anyone interested, please email me at: or And always remember too Always Give Back.
