Weekend event raises awareness of rare skin condition

A fundraising dinner will be held this weekend to raise money and awareness to fight a rare skin condition that afflicts a Jonathan Law High School student.

The Hunter's Wish to Cure EB fundraiser dinner will be Sunday, June 9, at Vazzano's, 337 Kenyon St., Stratford, from 4 to 8 p.m.

According to an announcement about the event, “Hunter has a rare genetic skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). He is missing the necessary collagen to keep his skin intact and it creates blisters all over the skin.”

Hunter's Wish is a non profit organization that was created in 2014 to help raise awareness about Epidermolysis Bullosa.

Hunter is a 15-year-old sophomore at Jonathan Law High School.
