Support Team Phoenix!

As I speak to groups around the world, I have found there is an overwhelming desire on behalf of the audience to want to give back, reach out, or somehow respond to my message about the burn community. For months I was not able to articulate an appropriate response, therefore, it was with the help of some wonderful individuals who were willing to find a solution that we developed the Support Team Phoenix link and have finally made it available to you.

If you are reading this message and have followed my story, you already know that I am a burn survivor and an active member of the Phoenix Society. This organization, which is named after the mythical bird that rose from the ashes brighter than before, is dedicated to burn survivors, their loved ones, and care providers. One of my fellow burn survivors and co-board member is the fabulous JR Martinez, who graciously posed for a photo with me, which is displayed on our site. Thank you again JR!


We determined there are several ways in which support can be shown (two of which are free). Please be clear this is not a solicitation, however, we felt it is important to add a donation option for those readers/listeners who may feel a financial contribution is how they would like to show support.

At this time, I am personally inviting you to take a few minutes to consider option #1 of sending a message, a prayer, a poem, or words of encouragement. The Phoenix Society’s annual World Burn Congress is an important event for the burn community and I would be so honored to share with the survivors who attend in Rhode Island October 9 – 12, 2013, words written by the thoughtful individuals who have followed this journey! My goal is to capture at least 100 messages from the International pageant family…so please… even just a few words would be fabulous and appreciated more than you can know!

The links can be found below…and thank you in advance for caring enough to share your message!
