Jerry Seinfeld donated the proceeds from his Salt Lake City show last week to the Pachyonychia Congenita Project.
Pachyonychia Congenita (PC) is an ultra-rare genetic autosomal dominant skin disorder, caused by a mutation in one of five keratin genes. Keratin genes are responsible for production of keratins, which are tough, fibrous proteins that form filaments to support skin cells and give them shape and strength. Keratin filaments help cells handle pressure and stretching. With PC, the filaments do not form properly, causing extreme cell fragility.
The Pachyonychia Congenita Project is fighting for a cure, empowering research, and connecting and helping patients.
