Imagine your skin being as fragile as a butterfly’s wings.
Imagine every movement you make causing your skin to shear off your body.
Imagine cures and treatments being almost within grasp.
Welcome to the Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation ("JGSF"). We fund scientific research with the goal of curing and treating Epidermolysis Bullosa ("EB"), a group of devastating, painful, disfiguring and currently incurable blistering disorders that affect children from birth.
EB research is now at a stage where treatments and cures have the potential to become a reality. Researchers know exactly what causes this disease and have encouraging knowledge of how to fix it. With more funding, a finish line can be in sight for the thousands of children who were born with this disease.
Given that EB affects fewer than 25,000 people in the United States, advancing this research relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations.
Curing a rare disease is always a race against the clock. Curing EB is a race against a clock moving at warp speed. The more funds we can raise, the more research we can fund and the more lives we can save. Within the foreseeable future, and even sooner with your support, the research we're funding on will allow children with EB to grow up to live full and pain-free lives.
