Carson was born in 2007 with a rare genetic skin disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). EB is characterized by the presence of extremely fragile skin and recurrent blister formation, resulting from minor friction or trauma. People with EB are often associated with butterflies, because their skin is as fragile as a butterfly’s wings. Carson is wrapped from neck to toe in special pads, bandages, etc. to help heal his wounds and protect his skin as best as possible. Aside from living with EB and what he knows as his “special skin”, Carson is a happy little boy who is full of life. He enjoys playing with his toy cars and trucks, riding his big wheel, reading books, and doing many other typical little boy activities.
