Child Life On Call: Parents of children with an illness or medical condition share their stories with a child life specialist


Nov 11, 2020

In this episode, Annie, Certified Child Life Specialist, talks to Eilieen. She is the amazing mom of a determined, fun loving, 4-year-old hero named Brady. Brady was diagnosed with Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa (RDEB).

While he inspires all who meets him, his favorite thing is just being a typical boy and being treated as such. After a move from Texas to Colorado to find the best care and environment for him, life shifted and their family became advocates in the RDEB community.

Eileen is on the board of the EB Research Partnership and they have an absolutely star studded (like for real a ton of A-listers) event coming up on November 18th that will be streamed on Amazon.
