Social media star Adalia Rose spent much of her life bringing awareness to an early-aging disorder, and in doing so, she touched the hearts of many people. We are saddened to report Adalia passed away at just 15 years old.
Adalia’s family revealed her passing to her millions of fans on Instagram and Facebook in a touching statement.
“January 12,2src22 at 7pm Adalia Rose Williams was set free from this world,” the statement read. “She came into it quietly and she 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.”
Adalia Rose amassed more than 15 million followers on social media as she documented her journey with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome–a rare genetic disorder that causes children to age eight years for very year they are alive. Diagnosed with the disorder at only 3 months old, Adalia experienced symptoms like delayed development and alopecia.
Despite living with progeria, Adalia found joy in sharing videos about makeup tips, fun times with her family members, and showcasing her great personality.
Many fans and stars, including designer Michael Costello, sent their condolences to Adalia’s family, sharing sweet messages about the impact she had on this world.
“My heart is broken. I received a message at 7pm last night, Adalia Rose Williams was called home to God. I am at a loss for words and cannot stop crying,” Costello, who previously designed a gown for Adalia, said on Instagram. “She was an angel. Despite the card she was dealt with, she had the most positive attitude and such big dreams of helping everyone around her.”
Adalia’s family has not revealed her cause of death at this time. Continue to keep her loved ones in your prayers.
