Memorial Medical Center Begins Group for Burn Support Survivors

Updated: Monday, July 14 2014, 10:20 AM CDT
Memorial Medical Center recently teamed up with Southern Illinois University Health Care to start a support group for burn survivors.

Thereasa Abrams of the SIU says many survivors don't realize the challenges that lie ahead once released from the hospital. 

Abrams is hoping this group will help participants to be around their peers who understand what they are going through.  She says this will help them to know they are not uncommon.

The Burn Support Group meets once a month at the Bayless Building of Memorial Medical Center.  The next meeting will be held Thursday, July 17 at 7 p.m.Memorial Medical Center Begins Group for Burn Support Survivors
