When Denise L. of Shelby, Ohio decided to have a garage sale in June, her oldest son Jackson decided to have a drink stand and donate the proceeds to FIRST, because he wanted to find a way to help his younger brother. The Lewis’ youngest son, Brennan, is 5 years old and affected with Congenital Bullous Ichthyosiform Erythroderma (CBIE). Brennan’s ichthyosis appears to be a spontaneous mutation, as neither of his parents has the gene. Denise also decided to donate the proceeds of her garage sale to FIRST. The 2-day sale was held in mid-June and more than $500 was raised by both ventures.
