Living with Epidermolysis Bullosa (Paperback)

Compiled by Silvia Corradin, edited by Brenda G.

Living with Epidermolysis Bullosa has first-hand accounts written by parents and patients who are living or have lived with EB, and was compiled to help people in general understand how it is like to truly live with every form of Epidermolysis Bullosa; from the milder Simplex variants, who are nonetheless not simple to live with, to the more lethal, namely Junctional, whose patients usually succumb to before their first birthday. The stories you will read are from proud parents, or patients and their struggles and how they are coping. Some stories are sad, some are encouraging, and everything in between.


Thick Skinned
by Dan Cogliano

About the Author
Dan Cogliano was born with a condition (yes, Epidermolysis Bullosa) that in some people makes even the touch of another human or drink from a glass of water a potential cause for medical treatment. But Dan’s perseverance in the face of this malady paid off big time.
First, as an actor, he appeared on the daytime soap opera “Another World” and in over two dozen off-Broadway classical repertory productions. Then he went on to the job of vice president in the international marketing division of “Merrill Lynch.” And along the way he became a husband, father, and athlete.

Book Description
Here is a personal story of how we are shaped by the life we are dealt
and how by rising to those challenges we forge our own lives. This
is a story of getting through the pain, the tough times, and the
seemingly impossible. Above all, it is story of what it means to
be human.

In a systematic and thorough fashion, the editors present the basic science necessary to understand the pathogenesis of the disease, as well as system by

Bullosa in a form appropriate for use in daily clinical management

 Jonny Kennedy (Paperback)
The Story
of the Boy Whose Skin Fell Off
by Roger Stutter (Author), Nell McAndrew (Foreword)

Jonny Kennedy was the star of the
unforgettable Emmy award-winning documentary The Boy Whose Skin Fell Off. He was an extraordinary character determined to live an ordinary life despite being born with the agonising condition Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), which meant that his skin could literally fall off at the slightest touch. It was a
daily struggle he faced with courage, determination and wit, offering inspiration to millions around the world. Tragically, Jonny was just 36 when he lost a final battle to skin cancer. This is his moving, honest and uplifting story. ‘I feel very fortunate to have met such a special person and I will never forget him.’ –
Nell McAndrew

About the Author
Roger Stutter was one of Jonny Kennedy’s closest friends, and spent many months recording Jonny’s innermost thoughts and recollections for this extraordinary memoir.
Additional memories are provided by Edna Kennedy, Jonny’s mum, and
Nell McAndrew, who befriended Jonny in the final months before his
death. It is hoped the book will raise awareness for Jonny’s
condition and for the charities that continue his work.
