The Burn Foundation publishes these informative DVDs for burn survivors and their families:

 
  •  Healing Beyond the Scars: Recovery from Burns is a 22 minute film of burn survivors and their families.  It describes several common stages in the recovery process emphasizing psychosocial aspects of burn recovery.

  •  Journey to Recovery - The Burn Center Experience follows a burn patient through the burn center from the point of rescue by first responders to recovery and rehabilitation.  Filmed in a regional burn center, it is designed to answer the question, "What happens in a burn center?"
 

 
  •  Healing Burns: Firefighter and Family Stories interviews two firefighters burned in the line of duty and a spouse about their process of recovery.  Watch these first responders describe their own healing process.

See our Burn Prevention Store for more information.

Paul A. Jargowsky, Ph.D.

We were privileged to have Professor Paul A. Jargowsky, of the Rutgers University Center for Urban Research and Urban Education, as our guest speaker at our 39th Annual Gala on October 19, 2012.  

At the age of 15, Paul sustained burns over 70% of his body.  At that time, the chances of recovery from such extensive burns were remote, but Paul was fortunate to receive care at the newly opened Crozer-Chester Burn Center.  He made an amazing recovery and went on to graduate from Princeton and Harvard (masters and doctoral).  

Paul showed tremendous courage through his recovery and has devoted much of his life to serving others.   His bravery and inspiration of others are shining examples of the qualities that we are fortunate to see in many of our burn survivors.
