For people whose skin doesn't work - we do.

DEBRA is the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) - a painful genetic skin blistering condition which, in the worst cases, can be fatal.

DEBRA was founded in 1978 by Phyllis Hilton whose daughter Debra had EB – the charity was the world's first EB patient support group. Our vision: We have a vision of a world where no one suffers from the painful genetic skin blistering condition, EB.
