NASCAR Community Honors Tony Stewart

More Info
2 Dec

On Friday, December 2nd,  EB Research Partnership Co-Founders Eddie and Jill Vedder attended the NASCAR Sprint Series Awards Banquet in Las Vegas Friday to pay tribute and surprise their friend Tony Stewart, the race car driver who recently announced his retirement.  Both the Vedders and Tony Stewart were surprised though when Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendricks took the podium to reveal that the NASCAR community had made a donation of $1.8 million on behalf of Stewart to EB Research Partnership.

We at EB Research Partnership are beyond thrilled- and so grateful to be a part of this generous gesture to honor Tony. If you’d like to donate to this campaign, visit us at

On Tuesday, May 17, 2016 we conducted our bi-annual Community Council webinar “Beyond Blisters: Managing Distress in EB.” We were lucky to share space with experienced individuals, who described some tactical ways to recognize and deal with stress, anxiety and not being afraid to ask for help. Listen to the recording and view the presentation Community Council May 5.17.2016.

Our presenters:

  • Dr. Rebecca Bodán is an Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at California State University, Fullerton. She was trained at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California, Los Angeles as a clinician and researcher. Her research has focused on biological mechanisms of depression in those with chronic disease, as well the use of cognitive behavioral therapy as a means for managing depression in vulnerable populations. In 2013 she gave birth to Clara, who was born with a de novo KRT5 mutation, resulting in a severe generalized form of EBS. Like all EB parents, Dr. Bodán has done her best to provide high quality care for her daughter, piecing together what she has learned from EB clinicians, patients, and care givers to care for Clara. As her daughter has grown she has become increasingly frustrated with the lack of focus on the psychosocial impact that EB can have on patients and families alike. She hopes to move the conversation forward in the hopes that those living with, and caring for, those with EB may one day receive more comprehensive care.
  • Jennifer Innes has a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and Art Therapy. She also lives with Recessive Dystrophic EB. She works with children of different backgrounds and works with children living with EB.
  • Traci Stein, PhD, MPH, is a psychologist and health educator who has worked in New York City Hospitals, teaches doctoral psychology students about working with the medically ill, and maintains a private practice in Manhattan. She is also certified in clinical hypnosis and fellowship trained in the management of chronic pain. Traci received a PhD from Columbia University and an MPH in community health education from New York University. She is the creator of a series of audio self-help programs on topics ranging from self-hypnosis for healthy weight and body image, changing habits, and enhancing self-esteem, to developing self-compassion and learning mindfulness meditation. Traci’s book, “The Everything Guide to Integrative Pain Management,” has won the Independent Book Publishers Association, Benjamin Franklin Award in the health and fitness category.
