June 19, 2012 - Bubble Man

You've heard of the Bubble Boy or the boy who lived in a bubble. Today, you are going to meet the man they call the Bubble Man due to the bubbles he grows all over his body.



He started getting small bubbles, or tumors, on his back when he was in his teens. They covered his entire body by the time he was 32.

Even though he cannot go about in the town without completely covering himself, he does have a wonderful marriage and loving wife. He is also a caring father.

Two of his children are developing the same kind of bumps. He is hoping that someone will be able to identify what is going on and find a cure before his children experience the full body coverage of the bubbles, too.



The only thing the medical community has come up with so far is that it is a genetic condition and they think it has something to do with some kind of abnormality of the nervous system.


From the Huffington Post.

There's a woman works at the British Library has that all over her face and hands. Nice lady, very helpful.

Wow!

I wonder if they are painful.

Looks like neurofibromatosis. The 'bubbles' are tumors. Poor guy ... glad he isn't alone.

OK, ladies. We know you're wondering. Who's brave enough to ask?



glatt  Tuesday Jun 19 12:40 PM

Well, he does have children.

"What?? No recipes?" A delicious fry-up.

Fry up? As in, bubble and squeak?
