The Christmas Blessing (2015)

Author Kevin Kruse said, Life isn’t about getting and having, it’s about giving and being. During our time at the HCMC Burn Unit we were giving hope and being there to embrace families in need. The age range of patients we helped and the varied stories of how they were burned compounds the emotions we all experienced. Click here for the photo gallery.

The Christmas Blessing (2014)

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!
