EB (Epidermolysis Bullosa) Awareness
Epidermolysis Bullosa or EB, is a genetic connective tissue disorder without a treatment or cure. It affects only 25-30,000 people in the US, and lacks the resources and funding needed to find a cure. EB presents itself in individuals from birth, and it has devastating symptoms. The most prominent being that those affected have extremely fragile skin that  blisters and tears from contact as small as a touch. Internal organs and bodily systems can also be seriously affected by the disease. EB is painful, debilitating, and is in some cases lethal before the age of 30. This club’s goal is to help ensure that all children affected can have hope to live past 30. We can achieve this goal by raising funds for the cause. Kids like Jackson Silver, who have been victims to this devastating condition, deserve to enjoy the simple things, like hugs, in life that many of us take for granted.
