DEBRA is the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). Epidermolysis Bullosa is a group of genetic skin conditions which cause the skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch. There is currently no known cure for EB. At DEBRA, their work is focused on funding research to change this, while also supporting people living with EB to enhance their quality of life through improved healthcare, access to information and respite care.
