Do what you love and never let anyone tell you it’s not possible. I was burned 80% total with 60% 3rd degree. I spent 3+ months at the Shriners Burns Hospital in Cincinnati. I was 14 years old and at age 21 I left college to become a career Firefighter 25 miles south of Atlanta, Henry County Fire Department. I just reached the end of my 20th year at age 41. I’m a Captain in Operations now and love every day of the JOB!!
