Cause Description

We’re nurses who care for children with catastrophic conditions; we’re building a portable medical treatment unit, called the Honey House, for an 8 year old child born with epidermolysis bullosa, a terrible blistering skin disorder. It’s like being a burn patient your whole life–and the Honey House is like a burn unit on wheels. This cozy little cottage on wheels will provide our patient with a walk-in whirlpool bathtub, climate control, a storage loft for his medical supplies, and dedicated space for his wound care, which will prevent the spread of infection. Oh, and an Xbox. Got to have an Xbox. The walk-in whirlpool bathtub will allow our patient to submerge himself in water and gently debride his wounds and will reduce his bath-time pain by about 50%. There’s no medication we could give him which would provide that kind of relief–it’s a simple, non-narcotic means of reducing the every-day agony he endures.
