Time is very valuable especially to each one of us that are so busy growing up and doing things on our own. But not all of us grows old and change ourselves physically and cognitively (literally) like this girl who is said to be frozen in time. Watch the viral video and read the whole article below.

As been posted on YouTube by Latest Breaking News, HLN, and WBAL-TV, this video has already reached 2.1 million views! According to this documentary film, Brooke Greenberg is 20 and she lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with her parents and three sisters of which she is second youngest. While she may sound like an ordinary teenager, Brooke is quite unlike others of her age - she is the still the same size she was when she was just six months old.

In 1992, Brooke was born with a rare defect in which her legs were attached to her torso in a backward facing position. During her first year of life, Brooke's parents, Howard and Melanie, discovered that their daughter's problems were much more extensive than they first thought. She failed to grow and doctors suspected that she may never get any bigger. Her mind is frozen at the developmental level of an infant, her bones are physiologically those of a 10-year-old and she has suffered a succession of near-fatal health crises. Brooke's condition has never been seen before and has been called Syndrome X.

This special documentary follows the curious case of Brooke Greenberg through her first extraordinary 20 years. Using remarkable unchanging photos, home video footage, medical testimonies and the personal stories of Brooke's parents and sisters, the tale of the child who time forgot is pieced together.

Lastly, Brooke Greenberg died on October 24, 2013, at the Herman and Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai Medical Center in Baltimore (the same hospital where she had been born in 1993). Her funeral service took place on October 27, 2013, and that same morning, she was buried at Baltimore Hebrew Cemetery - Berrymans Lane, in Reisterstown, Maryland. The cause of her death was bronchomalacia, a medical condition usually occurring in children, which results in difficulty breathing due to weak cartilage in the walls of the bronchial tubes.

Many people in this world are all dreaming on staying young forever and to escape death. These people much watch this video and learn from it. We must fully understand that this life is just borrowed to our God and we are all going to die no matter how we escape it. Let’s all remember this girl that is definitely part of many people’s lives and hearts.
