Grateful for Graham

“The Dad Who Knows Nothing” talks to Carl and Amanda Robertello about their 2 year-old son, Graham, who was born with a rare skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). EB is a family of life-threatening rare genetic disorders that affect the body’s largest organ: the skin. The discussion centers around their journey as parents and caring for Graham over these last two years, along with how they have risen to this unbelievable challenge in providing him with exceptional care. Finally, we talk about the upcoming “Grateful for Graham” 5K that will be held on Saturday, April 30th, 2022 to raise money and awareness for EB research.
