WASHINGTON, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Old at Age 3: The Story of Zachary Moore (September 18, 2007, Boss Publishing Inc., $16.95 Trade Paperback Original) is a compelling and courageous tribute to author Keith Moore's son, Zachary, who died of "old age" at the young age of 3. Zachary was one of just eleven American children known to be living with Progeria, a rare, fatal, "rapid aging" disease that afflicts children. Zachary's condition resulted in aging 30 times faster than the normal aging rate. Says Keith Moore, "We've had the opportunity to see life in fast-forward."
The book offers a rare and vivid window into a world that chronicles family life -- Keith, his wife Molly, and four other children -- and the many joys and challenges they experienced in caring for their incredibly brave and joyous son. Zachary's story is of a life with continual struggle. But he overcomes the world's challenges with his amazing attitude, and in doing so inspires many who meet him. Through the book, readers will gain insight on how we can all overcome life's challenges. Old at Age 3 includes a moving and memorable compilation of Keith Moore's personal journal entries.
In addition to Keith's entries of deep introspection and courageous
honesty, the book includes an uplifting "scrapbook" of photos capturing
many of Zachary's adventures with his service dog, friends and family --
Zachary on Christmas Day; Zachary at school; Zachary on family vacations,
and more. Keith documents many memories with Zachary as if they might be
the last; small moments become significant
