We are very passionate about helping to find a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). Hard to pronounce, but hell to live with! Epidermolysis Bullosa is a group of rare genetic skin conditions. People born with EB are missing a protein which holds the two layers of skin together. Any friction between the two layers (such as pressure or movement) causes blistering and painful sores.
International EB Awarness Week 25-31 October. To help build awarness around EB and help generate some much needed funding for EB Research Foundation, we have teamed up with some of Australia's best know artists who have each painted a pair of Startas sneakers. Each pair of shoes is unique, just as is each EB patient. The sneakers will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the EB Research Foundation. The auction will be open to anyone, anywhere around the world, so be sure to register for your chance to own a truly unique art piece.
