About our charity : DebRA
EB - Epidermolysis Bullosa - is a genetic condition
where the skin breaks at the slightest touch, causing painful,
open blisters and wounds. EB can mean a life of extreme pain,
disability and, at its worst it is fatal in infancy.
People with severe EB are likely to contract a fatal skin cancer.
DebRA provides specialist EB nursing, funds extensive
medical research and provides counselling, welfare, respite and advocacy.
