Our story

This spring, please fund a brighter future for EB children like Albi, by providing specialist items that will enhance their quality of life and provide comfort.

“From the moment Albi entered this world, we have all been on quite the journey…”

Meet Albi, our eight-month-old bundle of joy, facing the relentless challenges of severe recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB severe). The slightest knock or friction caused by normal every day activities causes his skin to blister. His EB affects him both internally and externally, meaning blisters also form on his eyes, mouth and oesophagus. Despite facing the endless challenges his condition creates, and even though he is in constant pain, Albi radiates joy with a smile that lights up every room. We need your help to ensure Albi and others living with EB get the enhanced care and support they need today.  
When Albi first entered this world, the journey was daunting. His tiny little legs, red and raw hinted something wasn’t right, but with the support of specialists and DEBRA UK, we found relief and answers. DEBRA UK, through its Community Support Team, led by David, has been a lifeline for us. They work in tandem with specialist EB nurses and healthcare professionals to improve quality of life for children like Albi. They provide invaluable items, such as sheepskin liners for Albi’s crib and inserts for his car seat, a simple yet life-changing solution that alleviates his pain. This was our first insight into what DEBRA UK can do to support us and help improve Albi’s quality of life today.

As Albi grows and begins to explore the world, we take comfort in knowing that DEBRA UK will continue to stand by us, providing everything from seamless soft stretch baby clothes, to travel assistance for urgent hospital appointments and advocating for Albi when he starts at school.

Albi’s journey is just beginning, and we invite you to be part of it and to BE the difference today. EB is a life-long condition and there are currently no cures. Your support gives assistance to families like ours facing the challenges of EB, by helping us access the specialist items we need to enhance quality of life for Albi and provide comfort during his courageous journey. Your donation creates a brighter future for Albi and countless others living with the pain of EB
Will you BE the difference for EB and support children like Albi today?
Thank you,
Erin and Calum, 
Albi’s proud parents
