I Refuse EB was launched in 2012 by EB advocate Christie Zink to help raise awareness for EB, promote advocacy and support the research efforts taking place at the University of Minnesota by Dr. Jakub Tolar through the University of Minnesota Foundation (UMF)
Today, there is NO treatment or cure. But there is very real hope in promising research and clinical trials being conducted at esteemed institutions such as the University of Minnesota team led by Dr. Jakub Tolar. His tremendous progress in pioneering safer BMTs and gene editing has been life altering, and has potentially broader implications for others suffering genetic disorders or diseases.
You can provide hope this holiday season and be part of the cure. For each $25 donation, you will recieve this year's keepsake ornament representing all of those with fragile skin.
All proceeds will benefit EB research at the U of M through the irefuseEB.org fund for a cure at the University of Minnesota Foundati0on.
