For Courteney Cox, the fight against the debilitating skin disease epidermolysis bullosa is a personal one.

“My friend’s son was born with EB,” the actress said.

“I’ve been a part of it since then. He’s 11 now. There is no cure for this disease. It’s just such a horrible thing.”

The condition, which usually strikes babies and children, causes painful skin blisters; there is little hope for those affected beyond the age of 30, reported People magazine.

    Let me begin by saying,,,the media can and is often WRONG!Epidermilisis Bullosa is disabling,but just as any disease ,people w/it lead limited but normal lives.As far as survival rate,the stats are horribly misinterpreted!!I myself have E.B a mild form,and am quite well at age 40,my father getting ready to turn 72!So rest ured,if someone takes adequate care of themself,reducing risks,living w/in ur limitations,and staying away from obvious vices in life that will get ANYBODY in the end...their survival rate is quite average,and in some instances..qite beyond....
