EB Resources

Here are some EB resources that have helped us and work to provide awareness. We believe the work they are doing in EB research and/or helping families in need as they deal with EB is incredibly important. We need a cure now and these organizations are helping our baby Kiira, along with numerous other families, toward that goal. If you feel moved to donate to one of these organizations, I encourage you to do so.
