Our goal is to create a supportive and informative burn survivor community where survivors can connect with others to share their stories, emotions, advice, and support.


The Burn Survivor Resource Community is a trusted resource where like-minded individuals can find support and conversation. Every burn survivor knows the devastation that results from a burn injury. The experience is not only traumatic, but it can cause people to feel isolated, depressed, and afraid. Burn injuries can also put tremendous financial strain on survivors and their families. The Burn Survivor Resource Community was created to provide burn survivors, their families, and their friends with a supportive and knowledgeable community that also includes specialized legal support services to help burn survivors seek justice and proper compensation for their injuries. We encourage burn survivors and their families to tell their stories and to come together not only for support, but for advice and guidance from others with similar experiences. Please share your story with others who have experienced similar physical and emotional distress at BurnSurvivorSupport.org.

The Burn Survivor Resource Community is the largest online community of burn survivors. Our mission is to provide burn survivors with constant and easy access to a community of fellow survivors in order to help reduce feelings of isolation, provide inspiration, support and information. Our goal is to provide burn survivors with a place to connect with others who can provide firsthand understanding, feedback and knowledge.

We report burn survivor stories directly from news media and from survivors themselves. If you would like to share your story, please email us at Help@BurnSurvivor.com

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