Burn Foundation Donates Dolls for Pediatric Burn Patients at Crozer
Representatives from the Burn Foundation recently donated “Shadow Buddies” dolls for pediatric patients in the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. The dolls will be given to pediatric burn patients to help them ease the anxiety of dressing changes through play therapy.
The Burn Foundation is a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization dedicated to keeping the community safe from fires and burns and to improve the lives of burn patients, survivors and their families. The Foundation works closely with the area’s four regional burn treatment centers, including Crozer’s Burn Treatment Center.
The donation was made possible through the generosity of the Union Historical Fire Society, an organization based in Havertown that is a chapter of the Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus in America.
