It sounds like a cliché, but living with scarring does get better, and it’s good to hear that from someone. I like to think somebody out there might hear one of our stories and feel like ‘I’m not the only one’. A lot of burns survivors feel like they’re alone. They’re not. To me, being scar free is a mind-set. I wouldn’t be the person I am without my burns, they’re one of the things that make me unique, and I’m proud of that. Working towards scar free healing will clearly mean huge breakthroughs in treatment, but also in attitudes. Giving people confidence, helping them accept themselves and removing any stigma; that’s what I think Scar Free means.
