“Shared sorrow is half a sorrow; shared joy is a double joy.” – Proverb


Burn Survivors

Beyond recovering from your wounds, your entire being needs to recover from your trauma. We firmly believe that the road to recovery can be softened by sharing your story with others who can relate to your experience, can be inspired by you, and can often provide you with support and information to help you.


Friends & Family

The devastation family & friends experience when a loved one has suffered from a burn injury is very difficult to shoulder alone. Our Resource Community not only offers a resource to find help, but also offers a community where friends & families can find solace in a community of others who truly understand.


Burn Care Professionals

Medical and other burn care professionals are encouraged to share their experiences with the Burn Survivor Resource Community to offer encouragement and recommendations to burn survivors and their loved ones. If you are a Burn Care Professional, we welcome your insights and recommendations.

While the Burn Survivor Resource Community does offer advice on where victims and their families can get the
help they need, just as often what people really need is an ear to listen and a heart to understand them.


While this website provides essential burn related medical information and legal counsel to support victims seeking justice and compensation for their burn injuries; The Burn Survivor Resource Community is focused on and dedicated to creating the single largest burn survivor community in the world – where victims can share their stories, find support and advice from other burn survivors, their families and their loved ones, along with the many professionals who work to help burn victims recover from their tragic accidents. We invite you to join our community and hope that it provides you with the information and compassion that every burn survivor deserves.


Medical care during the first 48 hours after a burn injury occurs is the most critical. The challenge for healthcare professionals lies in getting burn patients through the initial stages of recovery, focusing on the prevention of fluid loss and preventing and controlling infection.


The Burn Survivor Resource Community will help burn victims and their family get sound legal advice regarding a victim’s entitlement to compensation for medical and family bills, as well as other services and help that can be of aid on their road to recovery.


While the physical recovery is extraordinarily difficult, the emotional recovery is equally challenging. Our community provides a a platform for survivors, their loved ones and their care-givers to share their stories and to provide one another with vital support and understanding.



Our seasoned team is dedicated to helping Burn Survivors find support and recover optimally from their injuries.
