DEBRA’s Big Breakfast: Decide what to have for breakfast, invite friends and ask them to donate what they would have paid in the local cafe.
Dermatology researchers from the St John’s Institute took part in the Big Breakfast for DEBRA as part of EB awareness week, raising £130.
EB (Epidemolysis Bullosa) is a rare genetic skin condition in which the skin and internal body linings blister at the slightest knock or rub, causing painful, open wounds.
“Our day job is carrying out research to find a cure for this terrible disease. DEBRA’s Big Breakfast is great because it gives us a chance to do something for patients and their families in a different way,” said Professor John McGrath, who leads the group.
