EB Research Partnership – co-founded by Jill and Eddie Vedder – is $5 million away from advancing a life-changing treatment and potential cure for EB.

Video: Cause The Wave: Eddie Vedder and the EB Research Partnership

This new video features Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam discussing Epidermolysis Bullosa, a devastating skin condition, along with Dr. Jakub Tolar, a leading researcher, and brave kids and grownups who battle EB every day.

An individual with EB lacks a critical protein that binds the layers of skin together. Without this protein, the skin tears apart, blisters and sheers off, leading to severe pain, disfigurement, and wounds that never heal. EB affects the body inside and out. Blisters occur all over the body, as well as in the eyes, mouth, esophagus, and other internal organs. EB causes severe pain, disfigurement, and in too many cases, an early death from an aggressive form of skin cancer. It is estimated that EB affects at least one in every 20,000 births. EB is not specific to any ethnicity or gender.
