Help for Burn Victims & Survivors in Mississippi
A small piece of what we are trying to do to support Mississippi Burn victims.
Posted by Mississippi Burn Foundation on Monday, May 7, 2018
Burn injuries are some of the most painful and traumatic injuries you can experience. They can also be some of the most expensive to treat because healing is slow, and treatment is often complex.
Imagine the feeling of waking up after a burn accident with severe skin and internal damage. You’re facing not only the pain of a long, often complicated recovery process—you’re facing an uphill battle emotionally and psychologically from the trauma of the initial injury, and the acceptance of a future that doesn’t look as straightforward and accessible as you once thought. Add to that the tremendous, often crippling financial impact, and you can begin to understand the overwhelming and far-reaching effects of a serious burn injury.
Now imagine finding hope. You learn about a special organization whose sole purpose is to help burn survivors like you cope with all the pain—physical, emotional, psychological and financial. And they’re there for your family, too.
We’re the Mississippi Burn Foundation, and we’re more than a nonprofit. We’re a community-wide, grassroots safety net for burn survivors and their families.
Thanks to the care and generosity of donors and event sponsors from across the state, the Mississippi Burn Foundation is able to provide care and comfort to burn survivors who need help accessing and affording life-saving treatment, specialized supplies, medications, and everything else that a successful recovery requires.
In short, we do what it takes to help victims and their families heal, inside and out.
The Mississippi Burn Foundation needs your support to continue to be there for these courageous survivors and their families. Find out more here.
