My story

In early 2022, an old friend - Iqbal Domun - sadly passed away. He lived his entire life with EB, but it was one that so many of us cherish in our memories of him. He was a brother, a son, a student, a teacher, and the warmest of friends who was always there to provide support and his unique take on any conversation. His smile and quick wit brought joy to so many, especially when he was hustling us around the pool table!

I am running the 2023 edition of the London Marathon in tribute to his life and to raise awareness of this condition which affects so many. DEBRA supported Iqbal throughout his years and with your support will continue to do so in the time to come.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and to consider supporting this amazing cause in memory of Iqbal.


DEBRA is the national charity supporting those directly affected by, and working with, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) – a potentially fatal skin condition that causes constant pain due to unstoppable internal and external blistering. DEBRA provides lifelong care and support to the entire EB community.Together we #FightEB and together we will beat EB
