On behalf of everyone at DEBRA, we'd like to pass on our congratulations to Her Majesty The Queen on her Platinum Jubilee.

Queen Elizabeth II will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service. 

We are so grateful for the support of The Royal Family in our mission to fight EB. You can read more about our Royal Patron, HRH The Countess of Wessex, here.

I feel that my life has been enriched by the experiences I have had since becoming Patron of DEBRA, mainly through the patients I have met at a variety of functions. I never knew how much the human body could withstand in terms of suffering until I understood more about how people with EB live with their condition. Yet through all the pain, the scars, the trauma, the endless process of skincare, the drugs, the emotional burden, the staring, the exhaustion of it all, I have never met a more positive and determined bunch of people.

- HRH The Countess of Wessex

We wish you all a fantastic Jubilee Weekend.
