Mission: To encourage and unite burn survivors and their families to advance burn prevention awareness and burn support.
Our support group relies on participation from burn survivors and those close to them. When we all work together, we thrive, offering one another support and friendship as well as raising burn prevention awareness.
We have Zoom meetings every third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. We share stories, provide support, and increase understanding of burn recovery. We’re casual and comfortable. You can participate as much as you want or just listen. Contact one of the advisory board members to get the link for our meetings.
In-person events are held across western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and western Maryland. These include outings (like families at the zoo), holiday celebrations (Thanksgiving potluck), dinners, festivals, and motivational speakers.
This is the most reliable source of up-to-date information about the group. Send an email to email@example.com to join our private group.
