THE BEAU & BELLE OF THE BALL
“It’s a real honour,” explains 14-year-old Jonathan from Russell, Ontario who was recently given the prestigious event ambassador title. “I’ve never been to western Canada before, and I am very excited to meet more families and EB patients.
Jonathan’s story recently made waves on social media with a viral news piece (engaging thousands of viewers and readers across the country), as Jonathan made his very private struggle with EB public by revealing his EB wounds beneath the bandages that cover approximately 90% of his body.
