DEBRA Ireland is an ambitious, patient-led charity with a powerful case for support. Established in 1988, we provide patient and family support services and drive research into treatments and cures for those living with the genetic skin condition, epidermolysis bullosa (EB). EB is an extremely severe and painful, rare, skin-blistering condition, which leaves the skin as fragile as the wings of a butterfly. Even gentle contact can cause devastating wounds. EB has been described by a Consultant Dermatologist in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital as “easily the most debilitating and devastating disease I have ever seen.” Many of our patients who survive childhood face the frightening reality that they could develop a very aggressive form of skin cancer, due to the constant breakdown of their skin.
