In brief: Absolutely!

Even though progeria isn't known to be directly inherited from parents, it still rarely occurs in more than one child and is a genetic disease.
Genetic counselors/geneticists will probably give you the best education you will get about this disorder. Our understanding of genetics is always improving. As scientists learn more, having a connection with genetics may be even more valuable you.
