The Boy Whose Skin Fell Off

I recently watched one of the most moving, funny, and sad documentaries on TLC that I have ever seen. It is about a young (mid-30's) Englishman named Jonny Kennedy who has one of the scariest genetic diseases ever, and one I had never heard of, dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Basically, his skin is so fragile that it cracks and comes off at barely a touch. I think I will be contributing to the research against this horrible disease. If you ever get a chance, see the film. If you don't cry, you are inhuman.
