yes irene, DebRA was jonny's charity. My son James was born with EB and he passed away in Sept 07. Support DebRA & CHAS, if you're buying xmas cards, instead of buying them from high street stores or supermarkets, buy them through these two wonderful charities, they are wonderful organisation.

DebRA has no advertisting budget so the charity is so little unknown or really unheard of for most people, for whose who was born with the condition, they turn to DebRA.

Anyone of you watch the programme 'LONG WAY DOWN' Ewan and Charlie visiting Robin House, they were in the rainbow room, where children stay after they have passed away, thats where James stayed until his funeral. WONDERFUL CHARITY!
