I don’t feel like I’m different from anyone else, but at the same time, I know that I am. There are the differences you can see, the physical impact of scars, but it’s the emotional component that stays with you forever. A world without scars is something I could never have even contemplated, and for me, it talks as much about the emotional impact as anything else. In my work as a doctor, perhaps because of my experiences, I try not to see patients, but people. That’s why for me scar free healing is an amazing medical ambition, but what’s really exciting is what it’s going to mean for people’s lives.
