The work that Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation does with burn survivors is beyond amazing; it is breathtaking and incredible. My son has attended Champ Camp and other activities of AARBF since he was 7 years old. He is 16 now and I think that one of reasons he has dealt so well with his burn experience and scars is his Champ Camp experience. The counselors, volunteers, and other staff know exactly how to make children feel comfortable being away from home, show them a great time, and really honor their experience as young people who are survivors. My son has friends from many places that have shared his experience; the counselors and campers alike grow close and develop a family. Another reason that contributed to his strength is the AARBF burn survivors support group that we attended in the first several months after we got home from the hospital. This was healing for my son, his sister, his dad, and for me. I cannot say enough about the importance of the work of AARBF. It has also raised my awareness of burn safety and of the importance of peer support. I am now a donor to AARBF.
