Imagine going to the hospital with a serious injury like a burn and making a new friend! Meet Burn Buddies. The little boys and girls are sent to all of the Burn Centers to give comfort to the children who are admitted to treatment. Their happy faces not only bring joy to their new friends, but they also help in the healing process. Each Buddy comes dressed in a hospital gown not unlike the patient. They also have a set of bandages that the children can use to simulate the treatment the children are getting from the doctors and nurses. This little bit of empathy goes a long way towards helping the children understand the treatment they are getting. Our Burn Buddies are underwritten by a generous donation from Union Historical Fire Society and individual donors like you.
