I don't where my daughter would be today if it wasn't for Michael Mathis and his wonderful Burned Children Recovery Foundation. He has helped her so much during her recovery. She was having so many emotional hardships and Michael can relate so well being he has been in her shoes. I love what he does to help all these kids!!!!

My daughter was burned when she was 16 months old and she became very shy and wouldn't socialize with people and kids because ev eryone pointed and looked. She met Michael and this camp through the shriners Hospital and it was the best experience of her life. She has gone to camp every year and is now 18 and wants to return as a councelor. This camp and the direction of its staff and board has made my daughter embrace her burns and help other people and kids as a result. She, Danelle, even wrote her collage term paper about this camp, Michael Mathis and the effect that they both have had on her life. I am very grateful for Michael and this camp and their continued help of children is a MUST! This staff is awesome, caring, supportive group of people who really make a difference in peoples lives for the better!

I am a parent of a survivor who was burned at 1 years old. We have been a part of the Burned Children Recovery Foundation for a little over a year. I found the BCRF through an internet search. I actually thought it was a hoax! Upon initial contact I asked, "what services do you provide and are they limited to residences of Washington?" Michael Mathis replied, "what do you need?". We contacted other resources, but my daughter was denied due to her age and we had to call back when she is between 6-8 years old. Mr. Mathis begged to differ. Services are needed now and throughout, so he took us under his wing! The services provided are astronomical, from financial medical support, emotional support, a 24-hour support line, personal needs support, a week of camp, and the Phoenix House just to name a few. Most important is building self esteem and courage which allows the survivors to know their wealth and beauty in spite of their scars. BCRF goes above and beyond duty expected from mankind. From the phone call check ins, to texting, to chatting, sharing stories, memories, laughs, and tears...these things allow us to grow and accept life. Being a part of this family allows us to be accepted, loved, appreciated, grateful, and blessed. Although we have only been with BCRF for 1 year, the empathy, compassion, and commitment BCRF gives us allows that year to feel like a lifetime. BCRF allows survivors and their families the opportunity to see the rainbow after the storm, and and we are beyond grateful to indulge in its ray of colors!
