I’m still in India but thinking about all of our EB friends on #rarediseaseday… 🦋”I cling to the hope that EBRP provides us…hope for a cure” says Laura, #EBSuperhero Salim’s mom.

I am proud that our work at @ebresearch provides EB families with hope that EB will soon be a thing of the past. This #RareDiseaseDay, support Salim and all those living with EB. Read his story, the link is in my bio 🦋🦋🦋”
