Heartbroken that such a wonderful person, and talented surgeon, has been lost to us. Ms Bernardis was instrumental in my tendon reconstruction, and I will always be grateful.

My story

Catina Bernardis was the plastic surgeon for EB at St Thomas' Hospital in London. She died of cancer at the end of 2022. In her name we are launching a Fellowship in Hand Surgery to encourage a trainee surgeon to spend an extra 6 months at St Thomas' learning about surgery and EB as a speciality. Within that period will be financing for 2 x 2week visits to other global centres for the surgery of EB.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto DEBRA.
