Survivor Stories

The journey of recovering from a burn injury often comes with doubt, hard questions, and physical and emotional pain. As burn survivors, we know that our scars do not define us – yet the stories behind them can offer a powerful path to healing. Sharing our stories of the journey – even while we are in the midst of it – can renew our strength and inspire others. Our stories can become a gift we share among the burn survivor community. They are a way of telling each other: “You are not alone.”

Burn Survivor Stories

We invite you to read the personal stories located in our resources library that have been shared by others who are on the journey of healing.  

Read Personal Stories

Or you may search burn survivor stories that were entered by survivors in our database. And when you are ready, we hope you will share your story. Burn survivors, as well as friends, family, medical professionals, and firefighters are welcome to share.
