A Birthday to Cerebrate

On July 8th this dashing kiddo celebrated his 3rd birthday! We were beyond excited to celebrate Caden's birthday. This kid is constantly blowing away all expectations. Caden was born with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). An individual with EB lacks a critical protein that binds the layers of skin together. Without this protein, the skin tears apart, blisters and sheers off, leading to severe pain, disfigurement, and wounds that never heal. EB affects the body inside and out. Blisters occur all over the body, as well as in the eyes, mouth, esophagus, and other internal organs. When SCH rescued Caden, the doctors told us that he wouldn't live to see his 1st birthday. We value every day we get to spend with this awesome kid. We are so happy that our baby boy is growing up so fast.
