Tom participated in an epic tongue twister challenge to raise awareness (and money) for a skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa. According to Wikipedia, it is an “inherited connective tissue disease causing blisters in the skin and mucosal membranes, with an incidence of 1 in 50,000. It is a result of a defect in anchoring between the epidermis and dermis, resulting in friction and skin fragility. Its severity ranges from mild to lethal.”
Similar to the Ice bucket challenge, participants recite a difficult tongue twister, talk a little bit about the condition and tag someone else. Tom tagged actors Charlie Hunnam, Dominic West and Gemma Arterton. Make sure you visit the Sohana Research Fund’s official website and learn how you can help!
