You all know Damian is the proud patron of Cure EB (formerly Sohana Research Fund), a wonderful charity that works very hard to raise awareness and funds to make the world a better place for everyone living with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a genetic skin blistering condition where the body lacks the protein to hold the skin together.

Happy Labor Day! It means this is the last chance for most of us to have one last long weekend before the summer ends.
