Being scarred is being disfigured. Being scarred makes me different.
But I use this as an opportunity, even as a topic of conversation.
So if you’re a young person with scarring, or someone who’s only recently
had to deal with its effects - don’t despair. Be confident. Like who you are.
The scars you have are a part of you, and this can be positive.

It’s important to talk about scarring like this, and to communicate
the problems people face, between researchers, clinicians, and patients;
the Foundation can play a huge role in that.

Ultimately The Scar Free Foundation presents hope for the future.
That things really can get better through research. That the mental anguish of scarring
that has affected me and millions of people, will be history.
