The Grace, Grief and Grit Podcast

The Grace, Grief and Grit Podcast

Epidermolysis Bullosa is often called the worst disease you’ve never heard of. The Grace, Grief and Grit Podcast along with the nonprofit organization Heroes for Hallie Grace, will shine a light on this rare condition that affects 200,000 families every year. While there are limited treatment options, currently there is no known cure. In this podcast, we will highlight the legacy of Hallie Grace who fought Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa (JEB) with her family’s support for three months. Her family, Anne and Joe Davis, continue to raise awareness and funds to help further research in finding better treatments and ultimately a cure - and to help other families who are walking this journey.
