According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States, 1.1 million burn injuries requiring medical attention occur each year. Around the globe, that number skyrockets to 11 million who face a burn injury annually. Telgian is proud to help those impacted by a burn injury by supporting the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors.
Founded by Alan Breslau in 1977, the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering people affected by a burn injury. Breslau, himself a burn survivor of a 1963 airplane crash, visited a young boy in a burn center shortly after his accident. There, he recognized the power of peer support and the idea for the Phoenix Society was born.
Today, the organization serves burn survivors, loved ones, burn care professionals, researchers and all those committed to building a safer world, uniting them to advance lifelong healing, optimal recovery and burn prevention.
As a supporter of the organization, Telgian will assist with a wide range of important initiatives including:
- Online Resources
- Peer Support
- Phoenix SOAR (Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery)
- Burn Support Magazine
One of the most important and far-reaching programs produced by the Phoenix Society is the Phoenix World Burn Congress (WBC). WBC is the world’s largest gathering of the burn community, connecting attendees to support services and essential resources. From speakers, to workshops, WBC offers many burn survivors their first chance to connect with others on the journey of recovery. In addition, WBC provides special programming for the loved ones of burn survivors loved ones, as well as allied professionals.
