CBF goes beyond expectations in meeting the child's needs when it comes to burn treatment. From support groups to paying for medical procedures and adding their love and personal touch to each family, what they do for us (families with burned children) is priceless. God Bless them! When burned children have CBF on their side on their recovery journey they are thriving!

Not only does the Children's Burn Foundation take care of all emergency and non-emergency medical care for its survivors, but the psychological, educational and cultural needs as well. In addition to the excellent and comprehensive care the foundation offers, their outreach to the community educating children and adults alike is unparalleled. The global training programs they provide to other doctors is unique and substantial. All programming under the helm of Executive Director Carol Horvitz has been executed under the highest of standards and with extraordinary enthusiasm. Bravo!

The Children's Burn Foundation is an extraordinary nonprofit. In addition to providing urgent care for child burn survivors, CBF takes the next step by treating all of the medical, social and cosmetic needs of the patient from the onset of injury through young adulthood. Based in Los Angeles, this outstanding foundation serves communities locally and globally with both medical intervention as well as educational training for students and medical professionals. CBF deserves careful consideration should be applauded for its exceptional attention to caring service.

I have worked in the Non Profit industry for many years, and I am impressed with the work that the Children's Burn Foundation has done. They are very efficient and effective at what they do, and they have earned respect from the burn community both domestically and internationally.

For a small staff, the company has exceptional reach into various communities and has occupied a unique position in that they assist burn survivors with a full-scope recovery all the way to 18 years of age.

Unfortunately, there are no shortage of burn survivors, and if you are looking to give, this is a great entity to support.

I have been involved with the Children's Burn Foundation for over 13 years. As a burn survivor, I wanted to get involved with a group that lens assistance to children who have been burned. There is not another charity in USA that offers all of the services that the Children's Burn Foundation currently offers. I am proud to be involved with this group.

The generosity of our donors has enabled the Children's Burn Foundation (CBF) to care for severely burned children from across the world. CBF's structure and protocols allow for exceptionally fast response to requests to arrange treatment and provide funding for that treatment. This response time has contributed to our saving several lives. As an example ,we recently medevaced a severely burned young Ukrainian girl to the U.S. for lifesaving treatment unavailable to her in the Ukraine.

I sit on the boards of five nonprofits all of which provide substantively important services to society, but none deal with the literal life and death decisions which Children's Burn Foundation faces daily. Reviewing the files and viewing the photos of a severely burned child is extraordinarily diffficult and uncomfortable but the consequence of our denying to provide support to any one of the children brought to us is dreadful.
Yet, because of the creativity, knowledge and commitment of Staff, the Auxiliary and the Board, the word "no" has been excised from our vocabulary. While our fiduciary responsibility requires us to discuss the pros and cons of providing the requested care, the essential part of our conversation is always focused on finding the most efficient way to pay for it so that we preserve as much as possible for the next burned child. CBF's creative responses to its challenges have enabled it to care for children from around the world.

A burn injury is one of the most devastating injuries that a person can endure. Its impact does not spare any aspect of a person's health - physically, emotionally and psychologically. The scars, both internal and external are lifelong. As a survivor of a burn injury as a child, I have a unique perspective as a board member of this tremendous organization. Not only do children endure excruciatingly painful and prolonged medical treatment for burn injuries, they also endure lifelong emotional and psychological challenges as a result of their visible scarring. The Children's Burn Foundation not only provides necessary and lifesaving, first class medical care, they also provide support for the families of these children. The Children's Burn Foundation is proud of its commitment to "full recovery" of these children which includes ongoing medical care, psycho-social support and family assistance. The Children's Burn Foundation doesn't stop there, we are also committed to burn prevention and education in the hopes that we can prevent these devastating injuries from occurring in the first place. I am so proud to be a part of this organization that is so committed to making a difference in the lives of so many people devastated by a burn injury.
