A September to Remember

A September to Remember

9/11 for every American and especially first responders is a day that is filled with emotion, memories & patriotism. There are many stories of heroism from that day and the days afterward. One hero was Welles R. Crowther who rescued up to 18 people in one of the World Trade Center towers. He was wearing a red bandana to protect his lungs from the smoke and ash in the office space and corridors. Welles lost his life that day but has left a legacy of commitment, dedication & hope.

Unwrapping a gift is so exciting for a child! A child recently effected by burns who gets to mentally escape from their current condition to open a gift has a whole new sense of gratitude. Life after a burn is physically painful, emotionally exhausting and mentally demanding for the burn survivor and their caregivers. Some of our patients on this visit were foster children, so our gifting adds a layer of compassion to these little hearts. We are only able to gift generously because we have been surrounded and supported by generous individual and corporate donors and sponsors. Thank you!
