Trial By Fire: Lives Re-Forged

We in the burn community are very excited about a documentary being produced. Called “Trial By Fire: Lives Re-Forged,” it takes a close look at the special hell burn survivors go through, and our lifelong struggles to heal—physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Producer Megan Smith-Harris explores the dramatic and deeply personal stories of seven ordinary people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Each story chronicles the triumph of the human spirit along with horrific pain. I am proud to be included among these brave individuals.

I am normally a very private person, but I am embarking on this very public road in hope that my 30+ years as a burn survivor give me a perspective that may help others on similar journeys through life’s challenges, especially when they involve burns. Megan’s purpose in producing the documentary is to give a compassionate voice to the entire burn community – not only burn survivors, but also our families and the medical and support organizations committed to our recovery.

You can learn more about Trial By Fire: Lives Re-Forged and see video clips at trialbyfiredoc.com. I invite you to follow this blog and maybe even share your own story, as we add more voices in hopes of fostering understanding. As Megan says, “TRIAL BY FIRE: Lives Re-Forged is a film about acceptance that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt rejected or marginalized for being different.”

FIRE IS UNFORGIVING…
WE DON’T HAVE TO BE.
