Lynn Anderson - Lifetime Achievement Award Winner

In 1991, Lynn Anderson and her husband Gary established the Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) Medical Research Foundation at the request of Dr. Eugene A. Bauer, then Professor and Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. EB is a genetically-transmitted disorder that causes the development of blisters or open sores which never go away and can cover as much as 75 percent of the body.

 

Two of the Anderson children died from the ravages of EB, which is what promoted the Andersons to establish the foundation. The mission of the foundation is to raise funds to support Stanford University in the search for a cure of this emotionally and physically devastating disease. Lynn has served as a non-paid president and CEO of the foundation from its beginning. Her hard work and passion for this cause have generated enthusiastic support and more than $6,000,000 in contributions. Lynn's greatest wish is to relieve the suffering of EB children.
