In September, Phoenix Society launched the “Burns Are Beautiful” campaign. Featured here, survivors share their stories of resilience, acceptance, and beauty with the tag #burnsarebeautiful.
"Because Phoenix Society is currently investing in telling its story, now is a very exciting time to come onboard as a storyteller. I feel fortunate to spend my days telling the powerful stories of our community—and of this organization. I’m a forward-thinking person, so the innovation happening at Phoenix Society right now is also thrilling to me."
Jim Maymon joined the Phoenix Society Board of Directors in October 2017.
The vision of Phoenix Society is to unite the voice of the burn community across the globe to profoundly advance lifelong healing, optimal recovery, and burn prevention. That’s a big, audacious vision. Some might say it’s unattainable. But as individuals impacted by burns and fire, we have a deep knowledge of what it takes to reach goals others believe are impossible. We understand that in the face of hardship, we rise.
