Each day over 3000 individuals from around the world suffer a burn injury. Many of these individuals do not have
the finances and/or the medical insurance needed to receive medical treatment and recover from the severe injury. As a burn survivor I
can say that most burn survivors who suffered a severe burn injury can understand the emotional trauma involved with coming home after a
long term hospital stay, burn unit, nursing home and rehabilitation. Our family members also suffered emotional trauma due to the pain their loved one suffered.
Burn Survivors Throughout The World, Inc. (BSTTW), founded in August 2001, has a support team that offers
the information, friendship and support needed to help both burn survivors and family members work through the emotional issues due to the
burn injury and reentering a community that does not always understand.
BSTTW is constantly raising the funding needed to continue the BSTTW
Support Team (BST). BSTTW would like to raise at least $100,000.00 for the BSTTW
Support Team Fund during 2019. BSTTW is currently in need of at least one car and automobile
insurance. This will allow the BST to travel around the USA and meet burn survivors and family members
face to face in their homes, burn units and also to help burn survivors begin support groups in their community. The funding raised can also
help the BST to speak with burn survivors and family members not only in the USA but all around the
world, mail support information, help burn survivors find medical referrals, offer online support and educational conferences, support
burn survivors and family members with the funds needed to get on the internet and meet with a BST and more.
A burn survivor and family member can always contact the BST by telephone, at 936-483-9014 or by email at
BSTTW Support E-Form.
