Finding Support in Your Community
Recently Maylina attended Camp Thrive with her fellow young adult burn survivors. They spent the weekend connecting with each other and other speakers talking about navigating the world as a young adult with burns. How do you navigate romantic relationships with visible scars and just working through your self image during this time in your life. After the weekend ended her mother reached out to share how the experience has impacted Maylina. Her mother shared how meeting a speaker who has similar facial burns to her and is thriving has given her more hope for her own healing process. We are excited to walk along this journey with Maylina as she navigate her healing and gets to a place of thriving.
