decided to celebrate her birthday with a 6-mile marathon. Paula, whose 9-year-old son, Jesse has X-Linked Ichthyosis, participated in the Lake Chabot Trail Marathon in Castro Valley, California on November 6 and used the opportunity to generate awareness about ichthyosis in her community and raise funds for FIRST.
