Lucas was born with recessive dystrophic EB. He is missing a crucial protein that holds our skin layers together, without it his skin constantly blisters, tears/shears off on a daily basis with the slightest touch. Leading to scarring, pain, disfigurement and wounds that may never heal. It not only affects the outside of his body but the inside as well, such as his eyes, esophagus, digestive tract, etc. There is no cure or treatment other than wound care and pain management. At birth he had no skin present on his wrists, left foot/leg, lower right foot, and mouth. That day forever changed our lives. Since then he has dealt and overcome many challenges. The pain that he goes through on a daily basis is heartbreaking. Donating to this cause will help fund trials in hopes of finding a cure not only for Lucas but for the thousands who are also suffering and have passed away from this horrible disease. Thank you for taking the time to read and donate!
