Burned Children Recovery Foundation
November 21, 2012

My wife and I have volunteered at the annual camp for burn survivors for the past 10 years. The camp is a great place for the kids to come together and share stories and learn how to deal with their scars when people make fun of them or stare at them. The adult counselors are available for one on one and group talks during the week long camp. In addition Michael Mathis hosts kids at the Phoenix House where they get additional counseling, love, and primary clothing and personal item needs met. Our lives have been forever changed by working with these kids which range in age from 6 to 18 years of age. It is so gratifying to see them come back year after year and gain self confidence. The older kids also help the younger kids learn to deal with their scars by sharing their own stories.
