This is sad news that has shaken many users of social networks. Indeed, Rania the 16-year-old girl known on the Web died on Thursday, October 15, 2020. This young girl was suffering from the extremely rare genetic disease of progeria, also called Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome.

Originally from Annemasse, in Haute-Savoie, she was known for her humorous videos filmed with in particular the youtubeur Gamemixtreizeoff. The latter paid tribute to him in front of the camera, explaining to his fans that he was still in shock at the terrible news. “I do not believe it (…) We do not have the impression that she is gone”, he begins with regret, before rejoicing that Rania has been able to realize her dreams, like have a community on social networks, give an interview or even make music. Saturday, October 17 in the afternoon, a rally was organized in his memory in his home town.
