Phoenix Society’s World Burn Congress 30 in 30 – 8/28

Today’s 30-in-30: A daily quote in the month leading up to World Burn Congress from those that have benefited from the event …

A hug shared between a World Burn Congress attendee and a Phoenix Society volunteer (picture not necessarily related to quote!)

“This is my first burn congress.  When I got here on Wednesday, I thought ‘Oh my god, what did I get myself into?’  It was scary and overwhelming.  Now it is Saturday.  I can’t believe it is almost over and I honestly feel like I am a changed person.  Not only do I feel better about my situation, but I also know I am more compassionate and inspired person.  I have never experienced so much love, growth, and education in such a short period of time.  Thank you for helping me start my healing by beginning to accept myself.  Thank you for showing me the stories of others.  Thank you for proving to me that I am not alone.  I am already planning for next year.  I can’t wait to come back and show all my new friends my progress.”
