7 Reasons Our Donors Matter
- “Phoenix Society gives me a place where I don’t have to feel self-conscious about my scars. Here I am one of many.”
- “What an amazing community I have discovered! Who knew after 11 years in burn care, I would have gained an amazing burn family both at home and abroad, I truly feel so very blessed and filled. Filled with love, filled with hope, and filled with compassion for my fellow burn family. Let us continue on daily to rise above!”
- “The Phoenix Society effects me the same way the Avatar’s friends affected Ang. He was a young boy facing the world, the entire Fire Nation. He was afraid, wanting to run away, wanting to hide from it. The same way I tend to hide from the outside world. A lot of times I feel alone. Feeling too small to face the world, but the Phoenix Society are the friends to let me know that I am not alone. They encourage me to not only be courageous but to help me face the world.”
- “Life is GOOD!! Life is Beautiful! Ever since my burn injury, I’ve been so humbled and grateful to be part of the Phoenix Society. A community of the most caring people I ever been a part of.”
- “This year’s Phoenix WBC served as an inspiration to me in so many ways. Hearing about the encouraging aspects of the break out sessions to volunteering reminded me how much our lives are intertwined with one another.”
- “Phoenix Society gives me hope, encourages me, and inspires me to keep thriving in the burn community.”
- “As a burn nurse, this conference helps center me spiritually and guide my care throughout the rest of the year. I truly believe in order to be a compassionate burn nurse, one must attend this conference. Every burn center should send representatives to experience Phoenix WBC... I believe ALL of us get to experience transformational healing here. Thank you for providing this wonderful opportunity.”
