Where Does your contribution to BSONE go?

In my dealings with a lot of people concerning different burn organizations, I find that there is quite a bit of confusion.  Our organization is Burn Survivors of New England (BSONE).  We are a New England based organization whose main mission is to send our constituency (New Englanders :-)) to Phoenix World Burn Congress (PWBC).  If you get a solicitation from any other burn organization, and respond, that money is not designated for New England PWBC…

Thank you for volunteering for my Burn Scar Therapy workshop

Thank you to the burn survivors and massage therapists that made the Myofascial Scar Release for Burn Scars workshop a success and a rewarding experience for all! You've all motivated me to keep working to bring massage to ALL burn survivors. My mission:

1) get more research on massage& burns

2) get insurance to pay for massage for burn survivors

3) get massage into the hospitals for burn patients. They shouldn't have to wait months or even years to start

Recommendation of Free Massage from Kate Peck

I had my first of three massages by Kate Peck at Journey to Health and would heartily recommend your participation if you are in the New England area.  Kate has a healing touch, a beautiful aura and real concern and compassion for burn survivors. Her ultimate goal is to research the benefits of massage on burn survivors. I believe in alternative forms of relief for pain and discomfort...her research project is another way to advance treatment for burns.

Burn survivor Carmen Tarleton has facial Surgery

We are thrilled to learn that Carmen Tarleton's facial transplant surgery has gone well. We are blessed to have her and Dr. Pomahac (who was the lead surgeon for the procedure) in our network. While the lead sentence in the article implies that disfigurement is a primary motivation for facial transplant, the many functions that a full face provides, eye lids, lips, nose are of huge importance to survivors with major facial injuries.…

Lesson Learned

After over 9 years of my husband being a 3rd deg 50 percent burn survivor, life went on and the worst was behind us, or so we thought. 11 months ago he got splinters in 2 fingers. Because he was treated 2 hours away at Bridgeport Burn Unit, he opted to go to a GP to have the splinters removed. Although his entire hand was grafted, who would think for a minute you would need a burn surgeon for something so minor. When the fingers began to get worse, we made the trip to the burn surgeon who… Continue
