My Burn Injury Still Affects Me

My Burn Injury Still Affects Me

Often people think of the immediate pain, and challenges following a burn injury. They may think of the long hospital stay, skin grafting, surgeries, and therapies - but they don’t think about the long term, lifelong effect a burn injury can have on someone. This year for Burn Awareness Week (February 3-9th, 2019), I want to spread awareness that a burn injury is a lifelong injury that requires extensive healing, and can even require lifelong healing. Please join me in helping spread burn awareness.
