WATCH: Otlametse Phalaste's memorial celebrates her jubilant spirit

20 April, 01:29 PM

A memorial service for Ontlametse Phalatse, the Progeria sufferer that touched the hearts of South Africans, was held in Hebron in North West on Wednesday. 

Phatlatse was well-known for her jubilant, courageous spirit and her determination to live her life despite the debilitating disease.

The 18-year-old suffered breathing complications and died last week at the Dr George Mukhari Academic Hospital in Pretoria.

Community members gathered at the Mmanotshe Maduane High School in Hebron to celebrate a life well lived.
