Meet Lizzie Mounter, who is running the London Marathon for DEBRA!

Lizzie is a 29 Year Old filmmaker. She has EB Simplex, which can cause painful blistering on her feet and hands.

"I’m 29 and I’m still learning how to live with EB, for me I’m lucky as it generally doesn’t have a huge impact on my day to day life. Though when I was younger my feet were more fragile so would blister frequently causing pain and discomfort; plasters, needles, scissors, pain relief and occasional bandages, were the norm. My parents helped see that my sores were attended to then I’d just crack on and occasionally get asked from loved ones “how’s your feet?”

I want to do it to prove to myself, help inspire others they can despite their restrictions and give back to my charity- DEBRA. I feel lucky because there are children who have severe EB, blistering that can occur all over the body and there is no cure. But DEBRA is a medical research charity dedicated to finding the treatment and eventual cure of EB."
