One of my favorite Salt Lake City charities is the University of Utah Healthcare Burn Camp Program. Cutt, Kendell & Olson has represented many burn injury victims, and have seen first hand how devastating these injuries can be. Serious burns require extensive and long lasting treatment, including hospitalizations and surgeries. They can result in permanent scaring, pain and decreased function. Among other things, the Burn Camp “programs uses self-esteem building, teamwork, and peer interaction to create a fun environment conducive to healing. Our camps provide the tools needed to not only survive your injury, but to also thrive in your recovery.” I believe it is so important that child burn injury victims get this opportunity to heal.
Each year, the University of Utah Healthcare Burn Camp holds a dinner and auction. It is a marvelous event. One of our clients’ stories was told at the 2016 event. He also participated in the auction. He did great! I also had the chance to meet some of the angel nurses who have treated some of our clients in the burn unit. It was a special night. I encourage anyone who is looking for a wonderful cause to get involved in the Utah Burn Camp Program. I hope to see you at the 2017 dinner and auction!
