There was a terrific article written for the Associated Press this past week about burn survivors and their path to living normally again. Here is part of that article:

Three dozen hotel housekeepers are focused on 62-year-old Sharon Everett. She’s helping lead sensitivity training at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati in advance of the Phoenix Society’s annual World Burn Congress held each year in late September. It will be hosted by Shriners Hospital for Children – Cincinnati, and is being held in this city for the first time.

She’s come to prepare the hotel staff for a conference that will draw hundreds of burn survivors from around the country, as well as family members, burn care professionals and firefighters. She also will tell her story.

Alan Breslau is the founder of this society; he is a burn survivor himself who was exposed to extensive burns in a commercial airliner crash in 1963. He officially incorporated the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors in 1977 after many years of work with burn survivors. This society provides valuable resources and a support network for burn survivors, their families and professionals in burn care.
