She came into it quietly and left quietly, but her life was far from it. She touched MILLIONS of people and left the biggest imprint on everyone that knew her. She is no longer in pain and is now dancing away to all the music she loves. I really wish this wasn’t our reality but unfortunately it is.”
She is known for bringing awareness about Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, a rare genetic disease that causes an individual to age eight years for every year of their life as reported by the New York Post. Williams was diagnosed with the disease when she was three months old. In 2012, Williams and her mother started a YouTube channel that gained approximately 2.9 subscribers.
