This past fall I first heard about Epidermolysis Bullosa - EB. It is a rare and terrible skin disease that affects children from birth. The slightest touch or friction can cause blisters and wounds all over a child's body - inside and out. These children are often referred to as butterfly children, since their skin is as fragile as a butterfly's. The University of Minnesota is conducting ground-breaking research and clinical trials to find a cure and are currently treating several children from all over the US at Children's Hospital. I am running a 10k and raising funds simply because I am able.
