EB Memorials

These pages are lovingly dedicated to those who passed away too soon. All of them have one thing in common, they all died of complications from Epidermolysis Bullosa.
EB is the name of a group of disfiguring conditions, caused by defects in any one of the genes that code for critical skin proteins. A number of different types of proteins, including collagen and keratin, are woven together to give skin its remarkably tough, yet flexible, properties. When any one of these proteins is bad, the weave is no good and the skin can literally fall apart with the slightest touch, causing painful blistering. This is a devastating and life-threatening disorder that has no cure as of yet.

In Loving Memory

A Solitary Journey

Grief is a solitary journey. No one but you knows how great the hurt is. No one but you can know the gaping hole left in your life when someone you know has died. And no one but you can mourn the silence that was once filled with laughter and song. It is the nature of love and of death to touch every person in a totally unique way. Comfort comes from knowing that people have made the same journey. And solace comes from understanding how others have learned to sing again.

-Helen Steiner Rice

My child has a skin problem called Epidermolysis Bullosa.
This is a long fancy name for a condition of the skin where a certain protein is missing from the top layer of the skin called the epidermis. Because the skin is missing this protein, blisters develop easily. This can occur after a slight bump of the skin, or can occur on the bottom of the feet from walking too much. Many of these blisters are painful, but most people with EB get used to them over time. My child will often wear bandages to protect the skin and allow healing underneath.
This condition is not contagious. You cannot catch anything. Unfortunately, there is no cure for EB right now,
but many doctors are working to find help for EB. If you wish to donate money or to find out more about EB, we would appreciate your contacting the following national organizations which are looking for a cure.
Thank You for your concern.

I don't know of any disease that children face that causes such long term suffering. You know, you have children that have things that take their lives, but, this disease, they suffer emotionally and physically for a long
long time before they either die or... well, and actually in the severe forms that's what happens.
