My story

Hello everyone and welcome to my fundraising page for DEBRA!
If you have stumbled across this page, chances are you’re a great person ;) 

In May this year, I will complete a marathon in Scotland alongside some good friends with the aim of raising not only money but awareness for the charity DEBRA. 
DEBRA is a national charity and patient support organisation, who have a focus on funding research to find new treatments and a cure to help improve the lives of people suffering from Epidermolysis Bullosa - EB. 

EB is a devastating genetic skin blistering condition. Having EB means a life of constant extreme pain and disability but it can also be fatal. Those with severe EB have a higher chance of contracting a fatal skin cancer. EB causes the skin to become very fragile - the slightest touch can cause the skin to tear or severely blister - which is why EB is referred to as ‘Butterfly Skin’. 
Butterfly Skin can cause blistering on the hands and feet or in severe cases, the whole body and internal organs. 

There are around 5,000 people in the UK living with EB. DEBRA provides an expert team of nurses and social care staff to work directly with families. DEBRA relies heavily on the generosity of the public to carry out its vital work for those with this devastating condition and ultimately to find a cure. 

I am running in this marathon to raise money and awareness for DEBRA. Any donation would be massively appreciated and helpful beyond words for the organisation in the long run. 
Let’s get to work.
