Family's Touch Painful For 2-Year-Old
« on: April 23, 2009, 05:23:56 PM »
Lord have mercy on this child. :(

Quote
ATLANTA -- A fundraiser will be held Thursday night for a 2-year-old Atlanta girl who has a genetic condition so rare, most doctors have only heard about it.

The condition is so bad for Ellie Tavani that even hugs from her parents cause excruciating pain.

The condition is called epidermolysis bullosa, which causes severe blistering at even the lightest touch, doctors said.

To make things worse, doctors said there is no treatment or cure for Ellie’s condition.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
