Ed and I are incredibly grateful to everyone joining us for Venture Into Cures,” says Jill Vedder. “Every day kids with EB and their families face astonishing challenges. This event will give people a glimpse into their world. EBRP’s mission is to find a cure for EB, and this event will help bring us one step closer to making that mission a reality by adding momentum to the work being done.”

Eddie is set to debut Matter Of Time during Venture Into Cures, as well as unveiling a new version of Say Hi. Elsewhere, Ed and Jill’s celeb pals will be appearing and performing, as well as educating viewers about Epidermolysis Bullosa.

Michael Hund, CEO of EBRP, says: “Our team is dedicated to accelerating life-saving treatments for patients and families battling EB, and Venture Into Cures offers us the opportunity to involve more people in our mission than ever before. Together, we will heal EB, and in the process, pioneer an innovative model for all rare diseases.”
