Ex-Marine and Little Girl Forge the Most Remarkable Friendship

Fort McMurray, AB, Canada / MIX 103.7

There is a story behind this special photo.






David “The Beast” Douglas who is a professional weightlifter, Marine Corps vet and motivational speaker, is BFFs with 12-year-old girl named Lindsay.

Lindsay has a rare disease called Progeria – which makes her age 8-10 times faster than a normal person, putting her life span at around 13 years.

“People looked at me as strong when everything about her was stronger. Instead of putting those words off to the side, I decided to put it right on me to make the point even louder,” Douglas wrote in the post with the pic of himself and Lindsay at the HopeKids Minnesota Relentless fundraiser.
