Held Aug. 6-12 at Camp Sabra in Rocky Mount, Mo., the Burn Camp is intended for for child burn survivors between the ages of 6-17 with severe burns. With the help of St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, Burns Recovered Support Group, which offers of burn survivor support along with aiding medical facilities and providing burn care education and prevention, has sponsored the event.

It’s why we are in business. Burns Recovered Support Group provides an invaluable service to those in need and Potter looks forward to continuing to support this deserving cause in the future.”
