Zach Pickard at 7: Despite progeria, he is a 'champion'

Zach Pickard sits next to the cage of his beloved guinea pig KC, singing the song of his favorite group, Queen: "We Are The Champions." Zach, the Lexington child who has the rare premature-aging disorder progeria, is now 7 years old and ready to enter the second grade at Stonewall Elementary School. He is a fan of the musical group Queen, proud of his guinea pig and can reel off numbers like they are his own special language, including how tall the Statue of Liberty is.
