    Thank you for sharing your story, Scott. This terrible disease took Cassie way too soon, and we are proud to honor her memory and story in BLACK HAT. Please keep helping us spread the word about BLACK HAT so we can make the film and raise awareness about this terrible disease.

    …con’t from previous post.
    The skin defect (EB) causes me to be tired all the time because my body is always trying to heal the wounds. It’s also tiring to have to continually endure people who stares and make comments about me which most of the time are not very subtle. Some people are so loud and cruel with their comments. So, hey you!!, yes you, the one who is reading this, the one who has a beautiful complexion, Mr. or Ms. Jon Q. Public, when you see someone who’s different, someone who may actually startle you, please don’t be cruel. Just smile pleasantly and wave. And whatever you do, please DON’T immediately lean over to your friends and whisper anything about me. I see that and I’m offended. I just want to be normal. I just want to be your friend.
    Cassie was blessed to have so many friends and family. I can’t judge her and pronounce her eternal home so I’ll just say that I hope that she’s in a better place now. A place where there is no pain, no sorrow, and no Mr. or Ms. Publics to laugh and giggle at her. I pray she’s at peace.
    May God richly bless you all.

    My heart goes out to Cassie’s family and my prayers go up for their comfort. I just heard about the passing of Cassie and it saddens me that yet another EB ‘victim’ has succumbed to this horrid disease. I understand the pain that she went through during her short 16 years. I understand what it’s like to be bullied by people who are so insecure with their own life that they have to put others down just to lift themselves up. I know what it means to have those sores and wounds. I know what it’s like to be in pain even when the pain meds don’t work anymore. I know that there is no position in bed that I can be in to ease the pain. The only choice I have is to find the one position that hurts the least. I know this, because I too have EB; (epidermolysis bullosa). I’ve lost several friends that have passed away from complications with EB. I’m very blessed and very thankful that God has given me this time. You see, I’m 47 years old and have been in pain for every moment of those years. It’s a traumatic and very tiring life, living with EB.
