Stick out your tongue out at EB because Sohana and other EB kids can’t. Due to blistering and scarring in her mouth, which makes eating painful, Sohana cannot stick out her tongue. She has lived with the pain of EB for all her life and before she turns 14, we are asking you to join our campaign and “Stick out your tongues at EB.” Text CURE to 70300 to give £3 or SOHANA to 70500 to give £5.

The Prince of Wales hosted a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace today, May 17, 2016 to mark 40 years of His Royal Highness’s charity The Prince’s Trust.
The Prince was joined by Prince’s Trust Ambassadors, including Sir Ben Kingsley, Sir Roger Moore, Fearne Cotton and Pixie Lott, alongside more than 5,000 of the charity’s supporters and beneficiaries. In the last 40 years, the charity has supported 825,000 young people.
During the garden party Dame Joan Collins and Gemma Arterton presented His Royal Highness with a portrait of himself created from hundreds of images of people whose lives have been touched by the work of The Prince’s Trust.
A digital book of memories containing messages recorded by young people and supporters of The Prince’s Trust was also presented to The Prince by Sir Ben Kingsley.
The Prince’s Trust was founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, and supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed, struggling at school or at risk of exclusion.
Many of the young people helped by The Prince’s Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law. The Trust’s programmes give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilize their lives, helping to develop self-esteem and skills for work.

SRF patron Damian Lewis interviews Professor John McGrath from Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Trust, Kings College, London to learn more about EB.
Epidermolysis Bullosa is a genetic skin blistering condition that affects over 500,000 people around the world, but very few people have heard of it. Those who have realise what a devastating impact it has on sufferers and their families. It is unrelenting in its pain and unrelenting in the distress it causes. – Sohana Research Foundation

Ambassador for Prince’s Trust Influenced by Keane Role
by Fred Attewill | Metro | March 25, 2013
Homeland star Damian Lewis’s role as a homeless man moved him to become an ambassador for a charity helping disadvantaged young people.
The 42-year-old star became involved with the Prince’s Trust after research for his 2004 film Keane, in which he played a man who suffered a nervous breakdown, showed him how easy it was for a comfortable lifestyle to fall apart.
Lewis said: ‘It’s alarming how few steps I trod in the film from a successful life to a breakdown into homelessness – and many kids are closer than adults to this because they don’t have support networks.
