BSTTW Coming Home 2022 Support Team Fund

By: Michael Appleman, CEO



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 and physical trauma involved with coming home after a long term hospital stay, burn unit, nursing home and rehabilitation. For an extended period of time I did not get the support I needed. I did not know any other burn survivors in the area I was living. This caused me to feel alone, Family members of a burn survivor also suffer emotional trauma due to the emotional and physical pain their loved one suffers. 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.

The BSTTW Coming Home 2022 Support Team Fund is in need of $150,000.00. BSTTW is currently in need of at least one car, preferably an SUV or Van and automobile insurance. The funds raised for 2022 will also be used to help purchase a car and automobile insurance for the BSTTW Support Team (BST) to drive to the hospitals, burn units, homes and other places to see, offer friendship, one on one support to both the burn survivors and their family members, offer funding to pay for medical expenses, clothes and food. When a burn survivor is in need he/she can always contact the BST by telephone, at 936-483-9014 or by email at You can meet with in a BST Member in a private internet chat room, speak by telephone and when possible a BST Member will come to your home.
