A fundraiser for the hero burn foundation
Burns are one of the most common household injuries, especially among children. The term “burn” means more than the burning sensation associated with this injury. Burns are characterized by severe skin damage that causes the affected skin cells to die.
Most people can recover from burns however, serious burns require immediate emergency medical care to prevent complications and death, unfortunately this kind of emergency medical care as well as the post trauma medical treatment is long and comes at huge financial expense!
