Specialized, non-adherent bandages and other necessary supplies for those with EB can have a retail cost in excess of $80,000 per month. There are times when families experience unexpected issues with their insurance coverage and cannot afford to buy these necessary supplies out-of-pocket. With this program, we aim to help bridge these gaps in coverage, and provide bandages for those during this time of need.

Requested supplies are matched to the best of our ability from the available inventory in our Wound Care Distribution Center.


The program provides supplies to everyone from newborns to adults across the U.S., ensuring that all those suffering with EB have the best possible chance of treating themselves with proper wound care.
