Sarah Bazey used her final answer to deliver the mission of the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors. Moments later, she was crowned Mrs. Minnesota International.

According to the Mrs. Minnesota International web site, the ‘pageant showcases the many accomplishments of Minnesota’s married women.’

In an excellent display of advocacy, the Phoenix Society board member and burn survivor used her platform to champion the efforts of the organization, while also sharing her own story.

Burned in a helicopter crash in 1994, Sarah is now a volunteer with the Phoenix Society’s SOAR (Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery) program at Regions Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Harvard Business School graduate is also the President and CEO of a national award winning constructions materials company.

“It was a complete honor to promote and educate people from around Minnesota about the Phoenix Society,” said Sarah, who was also a keynote speaker at the Phoenix Society’s World Burn Congress in 2011.

In the pageant’s final round, Sarah was asked what she recommended for a family to help a loved one that was severely burned, and how they might return to a normal life.

“You can imagine, it was pretty easy to share a message about the Phoenix Society and the programs that are offered,” she said.

Sarah will compete for the title of Mrs. International 2012 in Chicago on July 20th-21st, an event that will feature titleholders from throughout the United States and around the world.
