Your BSONE organization remains active, so we need your help. Since March during the pandemic we have donated meals to our Boston Burn Units and have purchased Communication Tablets/iPads for the use of inpatient burn survivors (4 hospitals) so they can "visit" virtually with their loved ones and possibly attend peer support one-on-one and our monthly peer support group. We've also recorded encouragement videos for Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital to play on their in-house system. We think this is vital to initial recovery. Some of you have done FaceBook fundraisers to celebrate your birthdays...THANK YOU! We encourage everyone to participate however they can to help us remain a viable organization.
We're Still ACTIVE and working to help in any way we can
We value our close relationships with our hospitals that support our peer support programs. In May, when we were still trying to maneuver our way around the lack of access to our hospitals because of Covid, we sent an appreciation meal to our front-line burn clinicians. Just seeing their faces (smiling under the masks) made our hearts happy!
In August BSONE and BFFBF were proud to provide our hospital burn units tablets for in-patient communication with their loved ones and for Virtual Peer Support Visits.
