It’s hard to put into words sometimes just how incredible the advancements in science are.
Specifically, in the field of medicine.
Yes, there is still a long way to go before incurable diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and HIV/AIDs no longer affect hundreds of millions of lives worldwide.
But, there has been an incredible breakthrough in one area of medicine that has saved a seven-year-old boy’s life.
The boy, Hassan, has epidermolysis bullosa and landed in a hospital burn unit in Germany nearly two years ago after the disorder caused blistering and lesions so severe that he ultimately lost 80-percent of his skin.
Thanks to two doctors in Italy and their medical breakthrough, Hassan is not only living with no signs of EB, but he’s thriving.
