This book was made possible by a grant from University of Texas Medical Branch President’s Cabinet 2014. Burn Survivors’ Journey was published 2017 and it will be distributed to patient admitted into the UTMB Blocker Burn Unit. UTMB burn professionals
can use this book to partner with burn patients as their healing process continues long after discharge once they have returned to their communities. As a leader in burn care and research, BBU’s innovative survivors’ anthology will become
a healing presence in the nationwide community that they serve.
Copies are available to borrow in the Dean and Marilyn Callender Library for Dynamic Longevity. One person involved in the project said, “Being a part of this project transformed my life.” Check out a copy and see for yourself the transformative
power of these stories. Books may also be purchased for $15 each at OLLI, or $20 each if mailed.

make it easier”. For more information, resources, blogs, and to connect with other burn survivors visit the Phoenix Society website.
Phoenix SOAR connects burn survivors and loved ones to a compassionate community of people who share the experience of a burn injury. It is a hospital-based, one-on-one peer support program that connects people with new burn injuries to survivors and
